MADRID, 18 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Ibex 35 closed this Monday's session at 9,482.1 points, which represents a decrease of 0.71% in a week that will continue to be key for the markets due to the meetings of several central banks.
After the rate increase decided by the European Central Bank (ECB) last Thursday, this week it is the turn of the United States Federal Reserve (Fed) on Wednesday and the Bank of England and the Swiss National Bank on Thursday, as well like the Bank of Japan on Friday.
During the session, the vice president of the ECB, Luis de Guindos, once again advocated wage moderation in the face of the effects of inflation, although he predicted that "the worst is surely over."
In the financial markets, Société Générale stands out especially, which closed the session sinking 12.47% after presenting a strategic plan that foresees almost meager growth (between 0% and 2%) in income until 2026 and a profitability somewhat less than previously anticipated.
In this context, Telefónica has positioned itself as the most bullish value of the Spanish selective, with an increase of 1.27%, ahead of Logista (0.97%), Repsol ( 0.82%), ACS ( 0.63 %) and Naturgy (0.29%).
On the contrary, Merlin has been crowned as the stock with the worst performance this Monday (-2.66%), ahead of ArcelorMittal (-2.48%), Colonial (-2.43%), Meliá (-2, 16%), Acciona Energías Renovables (-2.11%) and IAG (-1.88%).
In the rest of Europe's trading floors, the evolution has been similar. London has fallen 0.76%; Paris, 1.39%; Frankfurt, 1.05%; and Milan, 1.07%.
For its part, Brent stood at $94.70 at the close of the European trading session, up 0.82%, while West Texas Intermediate (WTI) reached $92.01, up 1.37%. further.
In the debt market, the yield on the Spanish bond with a 10-year maturity has reached 3.778%, compared to 3.744% at Friday's close. In this way, the risk premium against German debt has reached 107 basis points, just one tenth more.
For its part, the euro appreciated 0.32% against the dollar at the end of the European stock market session, trading at an exchange rate of 1.0690 dollars for each euro.
