After the employment report in the US published last Friday, which showed a labor market that is still holding up, despite the financial turmoil and rate hikes, the next reference to guide investors will be inflation in the American country. The market consensus expects the headline rate to moderate to 5% and core inflation to stand at 5.5%.

Among today's references, the industrial production of Germany stands out, which registered a decline of 3.4% in March compared to the previous month, when it had rebounded 2.1%, while compared to the same month in 2022 it experienced a increase of 1.8%.

CaixaBank has been the leading value in the selective of the Spanish stock markets and markets, with an advance of 4.79% on this day. It was followed by Unicaja Banco (2.78%), Fluidra (2.10%), ArcelorMittal (2.03%), Bankinter (1.92%) and BBVA (1.56%).

In the raw materials market, a barrel of Brent advanced 2.18% at the close of the trading session, up to 76.94 dollars, while the West Texas Intermediate (WTI) reached 73.12 dollars, a 2. 50% more.

The yield on the 10-year Spanish bond has stood at 3.404%, from 3.375% on Friday, so the risk premium has risen just one tenth, to 108.5 points.

The euro has remained stable against the dollar, although it is due to the fact that in the last hours it has fallen to around 1.019 dollars for each euro, after having reached 1.1053 'green tickets' during the early hours of Sunday at Monday.
