LGT Navigator: Strong bank results provide relief

Positive quarterly balance sheets of major US banks (see stock commentary), hopes of new high-level negotiations between the US and China on the trade dispute at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires at the end of November, and continued solid consumer confidence in the US ensured a conciliatory end to the week last Friday. The sell-off was mainly driven by technology stocks and the International Monetary Fund's (IMF) warning of a slowdown in the global economy as a result of the trade conflict. In Europe, Italy in particular remains a factor of uncertainty. 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. The ECB maintained its key interest rate at a record low and remained extremely cautious in its communication. At the same time, the Bank of Japan also left its key interest rates unchanged and even lowered its inflation expectations.

LGT Navigator: Italian yields depress Europe's stock markets

In view of the tensions between Rome and Brussels, the sell-off of Italian government bonds is continuing, driving yields on ten-year securities to over 3.7% – the highest level in the past four-and-a-half-years. The spread to comparable German government bonds thus widened to 312 basis points, or to a five-and-a-half-year high. Rising interest rates on capital markets continue to cause nervousness on stock markets and yesterday pushed the German stocks benchmark Dax to its lowest level since the beginning of April.
