LGT Navigator: Vaccine hopes provide strong November stock market performance

On Wall Street, the main stock indices ended the week with further moderate gains after the Thanksgiving holiday and a shortened trading session on Friday. In Asia, on the other hand, the new trading week started with slight losses. At the end of November, however, global stock markets can look back on a strong performance of about +13%, mainly thanks to hopes for a soon applicable and efficient Covid-19 vaccine. This trading week will focus in particular on the latest results of the regular purchasing manager surveys and the monthly US labor market report.

LGT Navigator: Stock markets tend sideways in the absence of impulses from Wall Street

As the US equity markets remained closed yesterday due to the Thanksgiving holiday, Europe's trading centers largely lacked momentum. Even at the close of the week today, activity is likely to remain limited. It is eagerly awaited how strongly the “Black Friday“, which is important for retail and online trading, and the traditional start of the Christmas shopping season, will develop. However, market sentiment continues to be weighed down by the ongoing tense pandemic situation.

LGT Navigator: Profit-taking before Thanksgiving, but market sentiment remains positive

After the Dow Jones Industrial broke the 30 000-point barrier for the first time on Tuesday, profit-taking was the main driver of market activity before today's Thanksgiving holiday in the US. Previously, mixed US economic data had not been able to convince investors to make further purchases. Revised data showed that the US economy grew at a record pace in the third quarter after the corona-induced slump. On the other hand, the situation on the labor market remains tense. In its minutes published yesterday, the Federal Reserve gave indications that it is prepared to further ease monetary policy if necessary.

LGT Private Banking Europe House View – December 2020

Are we in for a tough winter? After the US elections, the market sentiment is again dominated by the corona pandemic, but also by hopes for a soon available vaccine. In our investment strategy, we confirm our constructive outlook and continue to favor equities over bonds. In equities, we have a more balanced approach to quality and see catch-up potential in emerging markets. Within the bond ratio, we are increasing emerging market bonds in local currency to “neutral“ and downgrade corporate bonds to “unattractive“.
