Global Stocks Bound Back on U.S Infrastructural Deal, Inflation Data

This week, world stocks reach high as buy sentiment prevailed on market indices under our coverage with thirteen (13) advancers and one (1) decliner, after U.S President Joe Biden embraced a bipartisan senate infrastructural deal, this may extend the recovery in the world’s largest economy after massive fiscal stimulus helped the economy grew at a 6.4% annualized rate in the first quarter.


Also, U.S Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) price index, excluding the volatile food and energy components, increased 0.5%. In the 12 months through May, the P.C.E price index shot up 3.4% y-o-y.

Accordingly, in the U.S, the S&P 500 Index advanced by 2.74%w/w, boosted by gains in Nike and sector stocks. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite and DJIA index both gained 2.35%w/w and 3.44% w/w respectively.

Also, all the major markets around Europe, France CAC 40, German DAX, and UK FTSE 100 Index gained 0.82% w/w, 1.04% w/w, and 1.69% w/w respectively, as travel picks up in Europe.

Furthermore, the major indices in Asia under our coverage, China Shanghai Composite, India S&P BSE Index, Japan Nikkei 225, and Hong-Kong HANG SENG all advanced 2.34%w/w, 1.11%w/w, 0.35%w/w, and 1.69%w/w respectively.

All the major indices in the emerging market indices under our coverage, South-Africa FTSE/JSE Index and Egypt EGX 30 gained 0.88%w/w, and 4.19%w/w respectively, save for Brazil’s BOVESPA, which slumped by 0.90%w/w and Argentina MERVAL that remained unchanged.

We expect the global equity market to maintain a positive posture in the next trading week in reaction to U.S President Joe Biden Infrastructural plan. However, important economic data and monetary authorities may sway investors’ sentiment.
