International Market Update
Previous week rate hike expectation were raised high after FED chair Jennet Yellen showed optimism on US rate hike timing to be as close as September. However, this week the expectations around the near term rate hike were crushed with US Futures Index S&P rising handsomely and making a high of 2148 from lows of 2120.
The move was backed by weaker than expected retail sales data and factory data, which have reduced the probability of rate hike for the September policy meet of the Fed due next week.
European markets also traded in a narrow range with no clear direction, German Index DAX traded in a narrow range of 10547 to 10288 levels.
