Global Stock Market Drivers

On Thursday, stocks in Europe rose alongside Asian equities as investors awaited fresh developments on China trade talks or at least more clues on the strength of global growth. The dollar climbed with Treasuries and European bonds.

The yuan held overnight gains before key trade talks next week. The euro weakened as regional economic data fell short of forecasts, adding to the attractiveness of longer-term bonds.

These are some events investors will be watching out for in the coming days:

  • The World Economic Forum, the annual gathering of global leaders in politics, business and culture, continues in Davos, Switzerland.
  • The European Central Bank's monetary policy decision.

Oil Prices Slide

Oil prices declined on Thursday amid lingering concerns over slowing global economic growth that may limit fuel demand and after a surprise build in US crude inventories.

International Brent crude oil futures were at US$60.9 a barrel, down 0.4%, from their last settlement, having closed down 0.6% in the previous session.

US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at US$52.4 per barrel, 22 cents lower from their last settlement.

From the IPO Space...

After a lull of almost five months, the main line of IPO mart saw its first public offer on Wednesday.

The issue of Xelpmoc Design, an end-to-end technology solutions and support provider, was subscribed 45% on the first day of the bidding process. The IPO is open for subscription till today.

With IPOs hitting the markets again, we at Equitymaster believe a merit-based selection, primarily including valuation, business, and management quality, is the logical way to go about investing in IPOs.

If it means going against the herd, so be it. And going by recent past, this strategy has been proven to be successful more often.
