Reflecting the generalized pessimism in the world
The performance of the Brazilian stock market was also affected by the current tendencies in the world. And such tendencies are because markets are dropping. Also in the United States, the main stock markets indexes also experienced considerable drops according to previous data. Let’s check how was that decline in some of the most important indexes in the world.
- The Dow Jones index had a decline of 1.62%, with a final result of 34,304.21 points lately.
- S&P 500 had an even greater fall, 2.03% dropping until it reached 4,352.77 points continuing the same tendency of the other stock markets all over the world.
- Nasdaq also presented an important downfall of 2,81%, with an impressive but not so optimistic outcome of 14,549.56.
In Europe shares prices also retreated
The lowest that stock market shares have faced in one week, the FTSEurofirst 300 reached a drop of 2.07%. The pan-European STOXX 600 lost 2.18% to 452 points. This is the greatest daily fall in the past 2 months, and even before that the prices were not actually in a considerable increasing tendency. Technology shares were also dropping 4.8% and went down to the lower level for the past two months. All over Europe, the stock market is also following this same pattern and this means that the interest rates even in the United States might start going up. In order to avoid inflation, the Federal Reserve of America can start raising interest. At least this is the expectation because currently, the interest rates in the USA are close to zero.
The increase of the interest rates in the US was already expected
The Federal Reserve is expected to wind down on its Welfare program for economic stimulus during the pandemic. And by 2022 raises were already expected in terms of interest rates. Most economists believe that the Fed will actually increase interest rates earlier than expected, which was in 2023. This is a result of a poll by the FT-IGM US Macroeconomists Survey with 49 economists. And more than 40% of those people interviewed believe that the FED will announce it by November this year.
Severe supply bottlenecks after de pandemic
According to a participant in the same research, Stephen Cecchetti:
In 2022, there will be a sufficiently strong labour market with sufficiently strong wage growth and sufficient concerns about not wanting inflation to stay above 2 per cent for long […]
The point of flushing of savings as shortages of jobs, socials distancing and other problems related to the pandemic came along. Inflation is being pushed to its highest levels with all those details in the mixture as things were on during 2021. It is also important to say that inflation has been at its greater level for the past 13 years, which may lead to the situation as a necessity.
Oil prices are also part of the hike
As a part of the whole economic landscape, considering that there was a logistic crisis that developed in an increase of the prices started during the pandemic. So crude oil prices are on a hike all over the World as the pandemic continues and in some places, this product even started to lack. The commodity reached the highest price since October 28, and the tendency goes on.
Really what you’re seeing is, across asset classes, the market [is adopting] a pro-cyclical view, which means better growth in the future, higher inflation, higher bond yields […]
