Friendly – Market participants are pointing to cautious sentiment from many players amid ongoing concerns about Covid-19 restrictions in China and the ongoing cycle of interest rate hikes. You’re stuck in a kind of dilemma, says market expert Jim Reid from Deutsche Bank. Various Covid 19 scenarios are conceivable in China, with many more restrictions in the near future, but also stronger and more permanent reopenings by spring. A record increase in new infections has just been reported from China. However, the upcoming Thanksgiving festival and the so-called Black Friday that follows, as the first major shopping day with a view to Christmas, provide some optimism. Shares in video conferencing provider Zoom fell 6.5 percent. The company has issued a weak guidance for the fourth quarter. Dell Technologies increase by 4.1 percent. The computer manufacturer expects sales to decline in 2022. However, the quarterly results beat Wall Street estimates. Urban Outfitters gain 3.1 percent. The clothing chain has presented good quarterly figures and is also confident about the Christmas quarter. Medtronic shed 6 percent after the medical device maker reported lower-than-expected quarterly sales. Abercrombie & Fitch jumped 16 percent after the clothing retailer surprisingly posted third-quarter earnings.

Friendly – “The funds are still sitting on too high cash quotas and are just waiting for buying opportunities,” said one participant. Because the scenario of only a shallow recession is becoming more and more the consensus, the fear of a deep recession is dissipating. On the one hand, private consumption remains at a relatively high level – despite inflation, because consumers went to their savings reserves. On the other hand, the Ukraine war is leading to a demographic boom. In addition, the stock exchanges live on the hope of an easing on the inflation front – and thus the hope of slower rate hikes. Commodity and oil stocks as well as bank stocks were able to recover significantly after the recent bouts of weakness. Enel gained 0.5 percent. The Italian utility’s new strategic outlook was well received, with particularly positive comments on plans to reduce debt. Vallourec rebounded nearly 10 percent after falling over 13 percent after weak numbers on Monday. Vodafone fell 3.2 percent with a downgrade from Credit Suisse. In the MDAX, TAG Immobilien lost almost 12 percent to EUR 5.91. The real estate company cancels the dividend. For Thyssenkrupp it went down 4.3 percent to 5.17 euros. The investor Cevian has sold its stake in the group to less than 1 percent. The pieces are said to have been placed at 5.15 euros. Bet-at-home was up 35 percent, backed by a positive study by Hauck & Aufhäuser (HAIB). In addition, the soccer World Cup draws attention to the share.
