The CAC 40 opens down on Tuesday morning, losing close to 1% at the time of the writing of this article, after a gain of +0.65% as the closing yesterday evening.
Overall, it is the theme of the global economic slowdown that weighs on investor sentiment this morning, as it is becoming increasingly clear to the market that the impact of the trade war on the US economy should lead the Fed to lower rates this year.
Bullard, a voting member of the Fed is in fact expressed on this subject yesterday evening, and Powell, the chairman of the Fed, should speak today at 15: 45, which might offer a new opportunity for the market to update its rate expectations.
It should also be noted that several banks have also an opinion-conservative on the global economy, such as Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS), who spoke yesterday to a global recession in 9 months if the trade war China-USA empire.
The closing down of the US stock exchanges yesterday, is also to be considered as a factor bearish for the CAC 40 today.
