The market learned yesterday the minutes of the United States Federal Reserve (Fed), from which it appears that the members of its Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC, for its acronym in English) argued at their last meeting, held at the beginning of month, that "soon" it would be appropriate to slow down the rate of interest rate rises. The Renta 4 analysts point out that this possible moderation in the rate of interest rate increases was received with rises in the stock markets and falls in the yield of US bonds.

Today it has been known that the confidence of German businessmen has rebounded in November for the second consecutive month, as reflected in the index prepared by the Munich Institute for Economic Research (Ifo), which has stood at 86.3 points from 84 .5 of last month, thus reaching its highest value since last August.
