The Big Picture:
The Dax traded up 0.89% yesterday. The best performer being Henkel at +5%. Henkel delivered great quarterly earning and also revised its margin / profitability forecast upwards. The stock rose to its all-time high. In addition RWE showed very good performance at plus 4%, in light of a reduction in losses. RWE is the second best performing stock in the DAX so far this year, at plus 33,69%. The global policy of low to no interest rates continues, as the Governor of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand lowered rates by 0.25% to 2%, whilst remaining dovish on more measures to combat deflation. New Zealand Government Bonds traded at 2,10% yield. Compared to German Government Bonds however, this 2,1% can be considered high yield, Germany this week having issued a 10 year bond with a zero percent coupon and trading at 100,90%, giving a negative yield of 0.10%. The German state has never before been able to finance itself at such levels. In essence, should you decide to lend the German Government your money, you will have to pay them to do so.
