(AOF) – European markets may recover after a series of five consecutive fall sessions, including a catastrophic Monday. Tokyo did not know how to recover. The Nikkei index has just closed with a loss of 1.32%. Investors remain vigilant, waiting for the Fed’s decision on monetary policy tomorrow night. They are well aware of the need for the central bank to curb inflation as it becomes dangerous. Except that the acceleration of monetary normalization in the United States, as, of course, soon in Europe, will not be without consequences.

Yesterday in Paris
European stock markets started the week down sharply, still worried about high inflation. In May, it reached a 40-year high in the United States, which could lead to the Fed becoming more “hawk” than expected on Wednesday. Investors fear the economic impact of over-tightening monetary policy when global growth is already showing signs of weakness. From the sound of the call CAC 40 lost 2.67% to 6022.32 points, and Euro Stoxx 50, -2.42% to 3511.96 points.
Yesterday on Wall Street
Wall Street continued its severe decline. The reasons for this weakening should be sought on the side of the highest inflation in 40 years, which should push the Fed to strong pressure on the monetary brake. If on Wednesday experts expect a rate increase of 50 basis points, some consider an increase of 75 ps. Investors are concerned about the impact of this policy on growth. The Dow Jones lost 2.7% to 30,516.74 points and the Nasdaq lost 4.68% to 10,809.23 points. S&P lost 3.88%, officially entering the “bear market”.
