TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The DAX plunged in May, falling by 5.0%. However, the index has rebounded in June, with gains of 2.5% so far this month. The catalyst for the sharp rise this week has been comments from senior Federal Reserve officials supporting a rate cut. In recent months, the Fed has tried to present an aura of neutrality regarding rate moves, but has taken a sharp U-turn this week in favor of an easing bias.
