Last session of the year in markets such as Spanish, German or Italian, among others – tomorrow the stock exchanges integrated in the Euronext open half a session and London and Wall Street are open all day – we expect an opening without a clear trend in the stock markets Europeans, in an environment of very little activity.

The macro agenda for the day is also very light, highlighting only the publication in the US this afternoon of the number of new requests for unemployment benefits corresponding to the previous week, a figure that is a good approximation of the behavior of weekly unemployment in the country, and of the index that measures the monthly evolution of private activity in the manufacturing and services sectors in the Chicago region, the well-known like Chicago PMI. In principle, we believe that none of these indicators will be able by itself to move the markets today, according to analysts at Link Securities.

During yesterday’s session, the most striking thing was the weakness shown by the sovereign bonds of the Eurozone, a fact that caused a general rebound in their returns and that had as main “victims” the stocks classified as growth, specifically those of the technology sector, which tend to behave badly when long-term interest rates rebound, since this penalizes their valuations.

“We understand that the weakness of bonds at a time when in many countries of the Eurozone are breaking records of “positive” by Covid-19 It implies that investors take it for granted that this new wave will not have such a negative impact on the performance of the economies of the region as was initially expected, “they point out from Link Securities.

Experts point out that the divergence it is showing the strong increase in infections in relation to the increase in hospitalizations and deaths from Covid-19 It seems to confirm the greater benignity of the Omicron variant in relation to previous variants, as well as the positive effect of vaccines, which are efficient in limiting severe cases of the disease. All this is leading investors “to look beyond” the current wave of the pandemic and to begin to discount a rebound in economic growth during the first months of 2022. The main conclusion of the markets seems to be that Covid-19 has It has come to stay and that will become an endemic disease with which we will have to live, just as it is done with the flu or with the other coronaviruses that affect humans.

A focus of focus on the eurozone in the new year will continue to be inflation. Euro zone inflation forecasts below 2% in 2023-2024 are exposed to both downside and upside risks, Bank of Italy Governor Ignazio Visco said on Thursday. “(Inflation forecasts) below 2% in 2023-24 are, of course, exposed to both downside and upside risks,” Visco, a member of the Governing Council of the European Central Bank, said in an interview with the Italian newspaper La Stampa.

The ECB raised its inflation forecast this month but cut its growth outlook for 2022 as the COVID-19 pandemic and supply chain disruptions are holding back the euro zone’s economic recovery.

The Nasdaq Composite, on the other hand, closed the day slightly lower, in a day of very low trading volume. On Wall Street yesterday it was the defensive-cut sectors / stocks that performed the best during the session, with equity real estate, healthcare and profits leading the gains.
