LIVE MARKETS-Morning call: Waiting for the Fed

Wed, 16th Sep 2020 06:28

Welcome to the home for real-time coverage of European equity markets brought to you by Reuters
stocks reporters. You can share your thoughts with Joice Alves (joice.alves@thomsonreuters.com)

Milan.

MORNING CALL: WAITING FOR THE FED (0528 GMT)

European stock futures are hovering around yesterday levels with no clear direction as
investors await a Federal Reserve policy statement later today.

Yesterday’s upbeat U.S. and China macro data increased risk sentiment, but concerns about
the economy remain on fears of a second wave of virus-induced restrictions as well as a
political impasse over a new relief package in the U.S.

The Fed policy meeting which ends today is the first one since chairman Jerome Powell
announced a new stance on inflation and some analysts hope the U.S. central bank might take a
step forward on the accommodative side.
