LONDON — European stocks are expected to open broadly higher on Monday in the first trading day of the new year.

Germany’s DAX is seen opening 43 points higher at 15,887, France’s CAC 40 up 14 points at 7,164, Italy’s FTSE MIB 53 points higher at 27,191, according to data from IG.

 

Markets in the U.K. and Ireland and closed for the new year holiday, which means trading volumes in the region could be thinner on Monday.

The likely positive start for Europe comes after more choppy trade in Asia overnight, where shares were mixed on Monday. Some major markets in the region (namely Australia, mainland China and Japan) were also closed Monday for a holiday.

Trading in the shares and structured products of debt-ridden Chinese developer China Evergrande Group was halted in Hong Kong, according to an exchange notice. No immediate reason was given for the suspension.

Meanwhile, U.S. stock futures rose on Sunday evening as Wall Street looked to start off 2022 on a solid footing.

The new year starts with continued uncertainty around the Covid-19 pandemic, however. The rise of the omicron variant helped lead to thousands of flight cancellations during the holiday season and has led some businesses and schools to consider temporary closures. Several major Wall Street banks have asked employees to work from home for the first few weeks of January.

 

Infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci told ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday that U.S. health officials may soon update guidelines to include a testing recommendation to signal when a person who previously tested positive for Covid can leave isolation.

Inflation and monetary policy are also expected to be key themes for 2022, as investors expect the Federal Reserve to hike rates multiple times in the coming year to help cool the rise in prices for consumers.

Data releases include final purchasing manager’s index data for the euro zone in December and new car registrations in Spain, Belgium and Denmark for December.

    • Hi @DominicWalsh   Thanks for sharing your analysis on EURCAD.   All the best - MongiIG
    • EURCAD was consolidating for 3 weeks in a wide horizontal trading range on a daily. Its support was finally broken this week. I believe that the pair may go lower now. Next support - 1.428
    • Charting the Markets: 8 February FTSE 100 near record high, DAX 40 and S&P 500 also higher on Fed chair's speech. EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD prices oversold in uptrend. And gold and oil prices rally, as lumber drops back.
