Fundamental Highlights

As German markets were closed on Wednesday due to the May Day public holiday, The DAX is likely to pick up cues from yesterday’s events. The FOMC meeting which expectedly left rates unchanged while showing no support for the case of a rate cut prompted a sell-off on Wall Street which may drag on the DAX index. In terms of data, Germany publishes retail sales and manufacturing PMI report alongside the Eurozone which are likely to impact price action during the day.
