Morning Call. Market Overview for 24.10.2016


The Big Picture

Friday saw an important decision being reached in regard to the Euro-crisis. The small and rather unknown rating agency DBRS reported a positive outlook for Portugal. Doing so the agency credited Portugal´s progress in the reduction of its household deficit. The other three agencies S&P, Moody´s and Fitch rate Portugal´s bonds as junk. DBRS´s decision was keenly anticipated, as a downgrade would have made it difficult for the ECB to buy Portuguese debt in its bond buyback program. The ECB is not permitted to purchase junk bonds under it own rules and this would have led to Portugal experiencing vastly higher financing costs. In total, the Portuguese government now has more time to implement its reforms.


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