  • Following the declines suffered in the previous three days, the RF MGS Index rebounded by 0.16% to 1,101.161 points as euro zone sovereign bond yields moved lower due to continued uncertainties related to global trade. On the economic front, most data published today pointed towards improved optimism. However, a note published by the European Central Bank warned about heightened downside risks to global activity and trade arising from the rise in protectionism, as well as “the possibility of a further tightening of global financial conditions, disruptions associated with China’s reform process and geopolitical uncertainties associated, in particular, with Brexit.”
