Global Market Report


Chinese markets re-opened after Friday’s holiday, but moves were very slight on Thursday’s close. Still, the Shanghai Composite Index remains above 3,200 points and is now at levels seen last March before the China stock market lost altitude. Despite a positive aura surrounding the latest trade talks, a lack of concrete news has hindered any further progress for China equities.

The Japanese consumer confidence index came in below expectations today. Chinese inflation figures are due at the end of the week.


Markets in Europe are slightly adrift at the start of the new trading week, with losses below 0.5% on the day, apart from in Spain, where the IBEX is off 0.75% on Friday’s close.
