TODAY’s FACTORS AND EVENTS

European markets ended slightly lower amid thin trading volumes on account of the Ascension holiday in many countries, with investors ignoring gains on Wall Street as they digested the US central bank policy meeting minutes released overnight.

At the close, the Stoxx 600 was 0.08% lower at 392.04, alongside a dip of 0.21% in Germany’s Dax to 12,616.80 while the Cac-40 was slipping 0.15% to 5,333.34.

Meanwhile, euro/dollar was little changed, edging higher by 0.04% to 1.1221.

Overnight, the S&P 500 closed at a new record high, on an end of day basis, after what some traders and analysts – but certainly not all – appeared to interpret as a slightly ‘dovish’ set of US central bank policy meeting minutes.
