Morning Call. Market Overview for 23.08.2016


The Big Picture:

The Dax on Monday was able to retrace some of its losses, Closing down -0.47%. Support was given by Wall Street´s stable performance. In February the Chineses pharmaceutical company Chemchina offered to take over Syngenta of Switzerland. Syngenta is the largest producer of pesticides world wide. This offer has political connotations, as 25% of Syngenta´s turnover is produced in the USA, whilst also being a large partner of US agriculture in general. It is of note, that Syngenta also run the world´s largest center for genetical plant modification in the USA. A decision which is of strategic value to the USA. The Committee for Foreign Investment has now given the go ahead for this takeover. Syngenta share rose 12%. The Chinese will in future be looking out for more opportunities on the market. We are at the beginning of a development which will be an integral part of Financial Markets for years to come.
