Market News Summary

Customs data revealed that China’s exports declined by 14.5% year-on-year in July, while imports contracted by 12.4%. This marks the worst performance for exports in the world’s second-largest economy since February 2020.

European stocks closed stable at the end of trading yesterday, Monday, as investors awaited inflation data from around the world this week, which will shape their expectations regarding interest rates. Defense industry stocks also reached record levels amid increasing geopolitical uncertainty.

The European STOXX 600 index edged up by approximately 0.09%, concluding at the 459-point mark. This occurred ahead of the upcoming release of inflation data from Germany, China, and the United States this week—a crucial factor that’s likely to influence the potential duration of elevated interest rates. In the UK, the FTSE 100 index experienced a slight decline of 0.1%, settling at 7554 points. Concurrently, the French CAC index saw a marginal increase of 0.1%, reaching the 7319-point level. Conversely, the German DAX index underwent a minor dip of around 0.01%, landing at 15950 points. This decrease was attributable to a 6.1% slump in Siemens shares.

Risk Statement:


All investments entail risks and can result in both profits and losses. Leveraged products, in particular, may not be appropriate for all investors as the effect of leverage is that both gains and losses are magnified. Before deciding to invest in any financial product, you should carefully consider your investment objectives, financial knowledge and experience and affordability as the prices of leveraged products may change to your disadvantage very quickly, it is possible for you to lose more than your invested capital and you may be required to make further payments.
