US Open. Market Overview for 31.08.2016


Pre Market:  

The S&P 500 is trading 0.14% lower.The DAX is done 0.22%. Against the market trend, Commerzbank and Deutsche Bank gain 3%. Takeover speculation in the financial sector for this positive move. An Article in „Manager Magazine“, lent credibility to this speculation, by looking at various possibilities in the German financial sector. An underlying fact is that in future, the German banking sector looks set to suffer further under the current zero/negative interest rate policy. US banks in particular, have got a large  competitive advantage in this instance, as the Fed is contemplating raising rates. The ADP data arrived within expectations, coming in at 17700 in July, against an expected 175000. This data gives no direct relation to last Friday´s job numbers. The USD is rises 0.4% against the Yen and 0.07% to the Euro. Gold loses 0.25% and WTI Oil loses 0.86%. We expect a lower start on Wall Street.
