LGT Navigator: Investors awaiting next impulses

The promise of the US Federal Reserve to hold on to its quasi-zero interest rate policy for a long time to come was not able to help the stock indices to make any great advances.

LGT Navigator: M&A activity boosts US stock markets

US stock markets started the new week with solid gains and have thus partially made up for the previous week's losses. Merger plans in the technology sector in particular created a more risk-on sentiment. The shares of Nvidia climbed at times by around +8% after the company announced its intention to buy the chip manufacturer Arm Holdings from SoftBank. In addition, hopes of a soon-to-be-available corona vaccine improved sentiment. The focus is also on today's Apple event and already on tomorrow's interest rate decision by the US Federal Reserve.
