Gladiator Finance's Global Market Update 26th August 2014
Markets globally had a good day yesterday only to see a cautious start out in Asia earlier today.
After news from the ECB that the European Central Bank would be looking to QE measures maybe as soon as next week there was a flurry of activity on the European indexes and the US too.
The majority of European markets saw gains in excess of 1% on the news from Mario Draghi and the S&P 500 broke 2,000 for the first time in its history after the announcement that the ECB would be looking towards longer term refinancing operations and asset backed security purchases. There was also an indication that should this not be enough, they were prepared to go steps further to help pull the European Union out of the current depression it is seeing.
With Germany, France, Portugal, Italy and Spain, to name just a few EU members being in the limelight for economic woes, there was little surprise that a new round of more specific stimulus was implied.
This along with the Euro being at an 11 month low against the dollar shows that it is now time for the ECB to act and prove that it has the ability to stimulate the EU's economy before its too late.
Markets are expected to open lower in Europe after yesterdays positivity, except in the UK as they missed Mondays good news due to a public holiday. It is fair to say though that the UK economy is out-performing Europe at this time and they appear to be taking further steps to distance themselves from the trials and tribulations being felt by their cousins across the English Channel.
Many believe that it is only a matter of time before the United Kingdom leaves the EU as it looks like there is no way the 2 ruling counterparts are able to reach an agreement in the roles each will play in the other arena.
