Morning Note

Stocks bounce after sell-off, stagflation worries persist

In a word, stagflation. That’s how I’d sum up what this market angst is all about. Or at least, the spectre of stagflation.

European stocks in broad decline, oil weaker after OPEC deal

Risk is firmly off this morning with European stock markets slipping in early trade, led lower by the travel and energy sectors.

Morning Note

Summer heatwave for inflation

Inflation is getting hotter and hotter. UK inflation rose to 2.5% in June from 2.1% the previous month, smashing expectations and in the process likely to increase the pressure on the Bank of England to tighten monetary policy.

Soft start to trading week for stocks, earnings season ahead

Stocks in Europe were weaker in early trade Monday, following a fresh record high being set on Wall Street on Friday as equity markets rebounded from a Thursday sell-off. The Dow Jones, S&P 500 and Nasdaq composite all rose by around 1% to set new all-time closing highs. European bourses by contrast are tripping well-worn ranges. Bond markets are steady with US 10s around 1.35%, oil a tad lower this morning, but WTI remains above $74. Gold holds above the $1,800 level for now. The dollar is steady this morning after a couple of big down moves in the previous two sessions.
