    European Equities: A Week in Review – 13/11/20

    摘要:Bidens victory and impressive COVID-19 vaccine trial results delivered another boost for the majors.

      The Majors

      It was another bullish week for the European majors in the week ending 13th November.

      The CAC40 rallied by 8.45% to lead the way, with the DAX30 and EuroStoxx 600 gaining 4.78% and 5.31% respectively.

      Impressive COVID-19 vaccine updates drove demand for riskier assets in the 1st half of the week. Pfizer Inc. announced a more than 90% efficacy rate, which spurred a global equity market rally.

      Also supporting riskier assets was a trade-friendly outcome to the Presidential Election.

      The upside came in spite of market concerns over the near-term economic outlook.

      A continued rise in new COVID-19 cases and containment measures pegged the majors back in the 2nd half of the week.

      Also pressuring the majors late in the week was a reality check on how quickly an effective vaccine can inoculate the region and beyond.

      [fx-article-ad]The Stats

      In the 1st half of the week, ZEW Economic Sentiment figures for Germany and the Eurozone disappointed.

      In November, Germany‘s ZEW Economic Sentiment Indicator slid from 56.1 to 39.0. The Eurozone’s indicator fell from 52.3 to 32.8. The deterioration was a reflection of investor sentiment towards the latest lockdown measures.

      On Thursday, the ECBs Economic Bulletin raised more red flags over the economic outlook. The doom and gloom bulletin ended a run of 3 consecutive days in the green for the European majors.

      On Friday, 3rd quarter GDP numbers for the Eurozone also failed to impress, with downward revisions pinning back the majors. Quarter-on-quarter, the economy grew by 12.6%, coming up short of the 1st estimate of 12.7%.

      Finalized inflation figures from Germany, France, and Spain, and Eurozone industrial production and trade data had a muted impact in the week.

      On the monetary policy front, ECB President Lagarde assured the markets of more support next month. The comments off the back of the upbeat vaccine trial numbers from Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE.

      From the U.S

      In the 1st half of the week, JOLTs job openings for September had a muted impact on the markets. The majors brushed aside disappointing numbers, as investors responded to the positive vaccine news.

      On Thursday, inflation and jobless claims figures contributed to a Thursday pullback.

      Inflationary pressures eased at the turn of the quarter, with the annual core rate of inflation softening from 1.7% to 1.6%.

      Jobless claims figures came in better than forecasted but were not good enough to ease concerns over labor market conditions.

      In the week ending 6th November, initial jobless claims came in at 709k, down from the previous weeks 757k.

      At the end of the week, prelim November consumer sentiment and October wholesale inflation figures were also in focus.

      The Michigan Consumer Sentiment Indicator fell from 81.8 to 77.0. Concerns over the 2nd wave of the COVID-19 pandemic and economic uncertainty weighed.

      Wholesale inflation figures also disappointed, with the core Producer Price Index rising by just 0.10% in October. In September, the core producer price index had risen by 0.4%.

      The U.S majors found strong support at the end of the week, in spite of the weak numbers, however.

      The Market Movers

      From the DAX, it was another particularly bullish week for the auto sector.Continentaljumped by 14.38% to lead the way. BMWand Volkswagenwere closed behind, rallying by 11.02% and by 12.35% respectively. Daimlersaw a more modest 8.69% gain for the week.

      It was also a bullish week for the banking sector. Commerzbanksurged by 23.62%, with Deutsche Bankending the week up by 5.61%.

      From the CAC, it was a particularly bullish week for the banks.BNP Paribassurged by 20.13%, with Credit Agricoleand Soc Genrallying by 16.15% and by 19.50% respectively.

      The French auto sector also found further support. Peugeotrallied by 11.11%, with Renaultending the week up by 27.79%.

      Air France-KLMfollowed last weeks 9.43% gain with a 26.67% rise, with Airbusrallying by 22.23%.

      On the VIX Index

      It was a 2nd consecutive week in the red and a 3rd weekly drop from 7 for the VIX. In the week ending 13th November, the VIX fell by 7.08%. Following on from a 34.61% slide from the previous week, the VIX ended the week at 23.10.

      Positive data from Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE on their COVID-19 vaccine trials delivered the upside in the week. The gains came in spite of continued rising new COVID-19 cases in Europe and the U.S.

      Going into the week Biden became the President-Elect, which was also market positive. At the end of the week, Trumps chances of overturning the result diminished, with Biden taking Arizona, another positive outcome for the markets.

      For the week, the NASDAQ fell by 0.55%, while the Dow and S&P500 saw gains of 4.08% and 2.16% respectively.

      The Week Ahead

      Its a relatively quiet week ahead on the Eurozone economic calendar.

      Finalized inflation figures for Italy and the Eurozone are due out in the 1st half of the week. Barring a material revision from prelims, however, the stats are unlikely to move the dial.

      At the end of the week, wholesale inflation figures from Germany and consumer confidence figures for the Eurozone will influence.

      With the 2nd wave of the COVID-19 pandemic hitting Europe, consumer confidence figures will garner plenty of interest.

      From the U.S, its a busy week ahead. Key stats include retail sales and industrial production figures in the 1st half of the week. In the 2nd half, the focus will then shift to Philly FED Manufacturing and the weekly jobless claims figures.

      Also of influence will be industrial production, retail sales, and unemployment numbers from China.

      Away from the economic calendar, Brexit talks enter the final stretch ahead of the 19th November EU Summit deadline.

      COVID-19 news updates and U.S politics will also influence.
