The DAX has broken the mark of 14,600 points. How sustainable this breakout to the upside is will only become clear over the course of the week when the ECB decides on its future monetary policy.

The DAX continued to expand its early gains during the morning. In thin holiday trading on Whit Monday, the German stock exchange barometer passed the important 14,600 point mark and reached 14,618 points, the highest level since the end of March.

At the beginning of the week, the main driver was the easing of corona restrictions in the Chinese metropolis of Beijing. Also mentioned were improved economic data from China. There, the mood in the service sector brightened a little in May.

DAX investors are eagerly awaiting the ECB

Whether the DAX, after several failed attempts, will be able to establish itself above the 14,600 mark in the course of the week also depends on the European Central Bank (ECB). The monetary watchdogs of the euro zone will meet on Thursday to discuss future monetary policy under the leadership of ECB boss Christine Lagarde.

According to economists, the ECB is likely to announce the end of its net bond purchases this week. This would lay the foundation for the first interest rate hike since 2011, which is likely to be announced at the subsequent ECB meeting on July 21st. The Dekabank experts are expecting interest rate increases of 0.25 percentage points at the next meetings.

London stock exchange hopes for Johnson-Aus

After the long weekend in Great Britain on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s throne and only a few hours before the motion of no confidence in Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the London selection index FTSE recorded significant price gains. The British pound is also on the up. The British currency is currently gaining 0.4 percent against the euro and even 0.6 percent against the dollar.

“The market wants to see Johnson lose,” said Stuart Cole, chief economist at brokerage firm Equiti Capital. Because under new leadership, the government can concentrate on important issues such as inflation.

Wall Street ahead of significant price gains

Wall Street is also likely to be on the up again today after the most recent setback. The future on the US leading index Dow Jones Industrial Average is currently gaining 0.8 percent.

The future on the Nasdaq 100 selection index, which is predominantly stocked with technology stocks, even rose by 1.4 percent. At the end of the week, fears of interest rates fueled by a strong job market report drove the US stock exchanges into the red.

Brent oil price jumps high

Oil prices jumped at the start of the week after Saudi Arabia raised the price of its crude oil sales sharply in July. A barrel (159 liters) of the North Sea Brent cost $120.66 at lunchtime, 0.8 percent more than on Friday, after it had meanwhile gone up to almost $122.

Investors are betting that increases in supply planned by OPEC will not be enough to meet demand. Especially since China is relaxing its corona restrictions.

Euro and gold slightly on the rise
