LGT Navigator: Trump vs. Fed

US President Donald Trump's renewed criticism of the Federal Reserve's interest rate policy is unlikely to be well received by the capital markets and call the independence of the central bank into question. Trump criticized Fed chief Jerome Powell and complained that he did not stand for a policy of cheap money. Instead, Powell continued to raise key interest rates. At the same time, Trump dampened hopes of an easing of the trade dispute with China.

The ECB's cautious bias toward an interest rate turnaround, despite the announcement to end its billion-dollar bond purchase program probably at the end of this year, weakened the euro significantly.

LGT Navigator: Signs of de-escalation?

In Asia, the stock markets today followed Wall Street's positive direction after talks between the US and China scheduled for the end of August nurtured hopes of an easing in the ongoing trade dispute between the two world's largest economies. A fast agreement in this poker to gain better trading conditions might not be however to expect. Investors also hope for signs of relief in the Turkey crisis.

LGT Navigator: Fundamental data remains in the background
