  3. UK Q1 GDP growth accelerates to 0.8%; misses forecasts of 1%

Fundamentals

Economy: A slew of well-received corporate earnings from across the Eurozone and an easing of nerves surrounding the Fed meeting are lifting the region’s equity markets – the Eurofirst 300 is gaining 0.75%. Ukrainian concerns look to have been put on the backburner for now in spite of the EU following on from the US and issuing a fresh round of sanctions against a number of prominent Russian individuals. The mildly optimistic mood is hurting demand for traditional haven assets with yields on benchmark US Treasuries adding 2 basis points and gold slipping $5 to $1,290/oz.
