Published Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

Headlines

  3. Iran and the P5 + 1 begin final round of nuclear talks

Fundamentals

Economy: European equities are extending gains although at a more moderate pace as investors wait to see if US jobs and factory data can sustain the rally which has sent global stocks close to multi-year highs – the Eurofirst 300 is adding 0.3%. The moderately positive mood is experiencing lacklustre trading volumes as markets search for the next catalyst to take stock indices into virgin territory. A potential source of impetus will be US employment figures in the form of the ADP private-sector survey where expectations are for employers to have added 205,000 jobs in June. The low volatility environment has spread to highly-rated sovereign debt where yields on benchmark Treasuries and Gilts are unchanged.
