Morning Call. Market Overview for 26.08.2016


The Big Picture:

The DAX traded down -0.88% on Thursday. Weaker US markets and worse than expected business conditions data being major factors in the down move. From a technical point of view, it was vital for the DAX to defend the support at 10500. Confidence in the German economy surprisingly weakend in August,the IFO sentiment indicator dropping from 108.3 to 106.2 points. As such, the IFO indicator has dropped to the lowest level since February of this year. Both components of the data were more pessimistic than expected, the current situation, as well as future expectations.  Britain´s Brexit vote, after a time lag, is now taking its effect on German higher management sentiment. Business condition worsened in the chemical and electronic sectors, construction however, stays at record levels.
