European Equities fell on Friday, with overnight losses in Asia. US futures point to a bearish opening for the final significant trading session in 2022. This morning’s slew of mixed macro data from the old continent, including the French PPI, Spanish GDP and Italian business and consumer confidence, combined with usual profit-taking moves ahead of the year-end, are keeping risk appetite under pressure so far. Even if we don’t expect this trend to significantly change today, more market volatility is likely to be spotted in the afternoon as investors await major data releases from the US, featuring the core durable goods orders, new home sales, and the inflation report from the Core PCE Price Index.
The STOXX-50 is still trading in the short-term triangle chart pattern after yesterday’s failure to break the 3,888 pts mark. Prices could fall further to 3,735 pts or 3,675 and 3,645 respectively if they break out of the 3,800 pts mark.
