Morning Meeting AOF France / Europe – Paris expected to soar, LVMH on the front page – 4/13/2022 at 08:29

(AOF) – European markets are expected to rise at the start of the session in the wake of progress from most Asian markets. The Nikkei closed this morning with a gain of 1.93%. Stock index futures are well oriented on Wall Street. Investors should continue to process US inflation, which crossed the 8% mark for the first time in 40 years in March. Core inflation, however, has declined. Economists believe these numbers support the Fed’s restrictive policy. LVMH will be surrounded after strong quarterly sales.

Yesterday in Paris

European stock markets ended in a downward spiral, even though underlying inflation in the United States had been reassured. In April inflation stood at 8.5% year-on-year, its highest since December 1981. By contrast, excluding energy and food, it was 6.5% below expectations. This acceleration in inflation was expected and long-term interest rates fell. The US 10-year yield fell more than 7 basis points to 2.7%. The CAC 40 index closed 0.28% lower at 6,537.41 points, while the EuroStoxx50 lost 0.21% at 3,831.73 points.

Yesterday on Wall Street

Wall Street eventually closed in the red after mixed inflation data. In March, price increases reached a new 40-year high of 8.5% year-on-year, after 7.9% in February. This new outbreak should bolster the Fed’s accelerated monetary normalization strategy. However, ‘core’ inflation slowed for a month, falling from 0.5% to 0.3%, a sign that inflationary dynamics may have peaked and are tending to run out. The Dow Jones fell 0.26% to 34,220.36 points and the Nasdaq fell 0.3% to 13,371.57 points.
