Investing.com – Investors are, once again, showing their buy and sell reactions on the stock markets in a scenario of high volatility.
The corporate earnings season continues.
Cryptocurrencies are trading higher this morning.
These are the five factors that investors should take into account when making their decisions today:
1. Strong volatility again in the markets.
Another week of extreme volatility for global markets, after an apparent intense rebound at the beginning of the week. The fear of a recession and a more hawkish policy by central banks provoked a wave of sales and a fear effect that reaches beyond the stock markets.
Experts continue to recommend a great deal of caution.
2. Several members of the ECB speak
Edouard Fernandez-Bollo and Philip R. Lane, members of the European Central Bank (ECB), will appear on Friday. The focus remains on the ECB’s next rate hike as it follows in the footsteps of the US Federal Reserve (Fed) in tightening monetary policy.
3. Crypto bounces back
4. Asian and the American stock markets
5. Macroeconomic data
In the US, the Baker Hughes oil rig count will be released.
