TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Stock markets across Europe traded in the red on Thursday, with the DAX 30 falling 1.5% and other major indexes declining between 1.1% and 1.5%, as investors digested key central bank meetings and a sell-off in US tech shares overnight. The US Federal Reserve promised to keep interest rates at record low levels until inflation is on track to “moderately exceed” the central bank’s 2% inflation target “for some time”, but did not signal further stimulus in coming months, while the Bank of Japan left monetary policy unchanged and upgraded its view on the economy. Later on, the Bank of England will probably hint at more stimulus measures as Britain’s economic recovery is likely to slow and unemployment to jump.
