Despite yesterday’s weak USA macroeconomic numbers the global stock market gained on expectations that Fed will not hike next week. Apple share price also helped USA market to recover. Markets in China, Taiwan, South Korea and Hong Kong are closed for public holidays while the economic data today is very soft. The most important number today is the USA CPI number. We do not see reasons to trade actively today as we expect low volatility and insignificant trading opportunities. We recommend you to hold as the next week will be one of the most significant of the last months. BOJ and Fed will reveal their thoughts about future policy and global and domestic economic status. The main problem that market examines at the moment is that there are significant evidences that the global economy is very weak to rebound without central bank support and this is a big headache for central bankers .
