The S&P500 rose to a record close of 4,566.48 points and the Dow Jones rose 35,741.15 points, also at its highest point ever. Banks, manufacturers and makers of consumer goods have made strong gains, which resulted in the rise in stock prices last week. This is despite the labor shortages and high inflation the country is facing at the moment.

European stock markets, with the exception of the French CAC, are also heading for a higher opening after new record highs in the US. The Stoxx Europe 600 index as well as the DAX and the British FTSE 100 all rose yesterday.

The Ifo, an index is for the business climate in Germany, fell from 98.9 to 97.7. This is below expectations of Reuters analysts. Rising energy prices, and the upswing in the number of corona infections play a role in this. In addition, bottlenecks in the supply of manufacturing caused a delay in the recovery of the German economy.

The 6M Euribor is unchanged at -0.53% compared to previous business day. The 10Y Swap is unchanged at 0.28% compared to previous business day.
