Week ahead: Fed set to announce tapering?

All eyes are on the Federal Reserve and whether it will use this week’s September FOMC meeting to announce its long-awaited tapering of asset purchases.

Stocks look to end week on a high as travel stocks catch tailwind

European markets on a firmer footing on Friday – FTSE 100 made a bold move at the open to recapture the week’s intraday high at 7,093 struck on Monday before pulling back, still trades up roughly half of one percent in early trade. This comes after a lacklustre session on Wall Street – Nasdaq up a touch, S&P 500 down a touch after the textbook bounce off the 50-day SMA on Thursday.

European stock markets were modestly higher on Thursday after a rebound in the US and another dip for Asian equities overnight. Hong Kong down 1.7% as casino stocks fell again, and is now testing the lows struck in July and August, down about 20% from its Feb peak. Indebted real estate group Evergrande fell another 7%.
