DAX 30 - 19 January 2019


Fundamental Highlights

The German index recorded losses of 1.55% yesterday under the influence of concerns surrounding both China’s economic slowdown and the US-China trade dispute. The challenges these concerns pose on the global environment will be further clarified in a critical meeting next week between the US and China on the development of trade issues. On the release front, Eurozone releases CPI estimates and German employment figures may be enough to drive price action today, however the index’s high level of significance to the currently hurting global economy could keep investors’ sentiment negative as they await remarks from US Fed Chairman Powell.
