Morning Call. Market Overview for 13.10.2016


The Big Picture

Yesterday´s release of the Fed Minutes showed that the decision not to raise rates in September was closer than thought. The decision was 7: 3 against a rate hike, with more Fed directors looking to raise rates soon. The effects of low interest rates on jobs was discussed controversially, the pro rate increase side purporting that a lack of workers will lead to higher wages and  in turn, lead to inflation. Therefor this party is looking for a marked rise in interest rates. Supporters of low interest rates on the other hand, are looking at the scenario of many unregistered unemployed gaining new work. This would lead to inflation free growth, as salaries would not rise. There were also voices, which stated that the Fed would lose credibility without soon raising rates.


The DAX is in a sideways trend.  Resistance is at 10820, support at 10250.

The Euro is in a large sideways trend against the Dollar. Support is at 1.0822, resistance at 1.1429.
