General Sentiment

Investors await key economic data, looking for direction as global markets swirl in the mix still digesting Fed comments on inflation and asset tapering, despite U.S. Flash Manufacturing PMI that rose to a record high in June. Data from the Eurozone (PMI) also indicated growth at its fastest pace for the longest time, this comes after the ease of restrictions in the EU and consumer confidence sentiment.

Focus now turns to the Bank of England where they are expected to give an update on inflation after data from the UK also later today. 


On Wall Street, Indices ended up in the mix, while the Nasdaq took lead staying resilient with its record highs. Chinese shares lowered while Japan’s Nikkei inched up slightly projecting the feds after effects. A strong rally in Tesla by 5% lifted the tech index, while majority tech giants like Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft which had soared earlier ended up lower. Crypto-related stocks were also lifted by a bitcoin rebound from its previous tumble below levels of $30,000.
