  • Financial markets started the first session of the week with modest gains, focusing on the release of positive earnings results for Q3 (around 80% of the S&P listed firms have reported better-than-expected results) and bringing the S&P to a new record high. In Washington, Democrats lawmakers stepped closer to a deal on Biden’s fiscal agenda.
  • In contrast, stocks fell modestly in Europe, following the publication of the Ifo business climate in Germany, which showed a further deterioration in sentiment in October (97.7 from 98.9) amid supply chain disruptions.
  • The weak figures, however, had only very little impact on sovereign debt yields in Europe or the euro exchange rate, as investors were expecting the ECB to keep a dovish tone during the next monetary policy meeting on Thursday.
  • In the economic calendar, the ECB will publish the Q3 bank lending survey for the euro area and, in the U.S., new home sales for September will be released.
