American Market Reaches Historical Maximum

The S&P 500 index yesterday reached a historical maximum on the back of weak statistics which strengthened investor confidence that the Federal Reserve is in no hurry to raise interest rates. Elsewhere, many in the market are talking about a speedy and quite painful correction for the American stock market.

Pound Rises on Strong Retail Sales Data

According to the statistics, UK April retail sales increased 1.2% in comparison with the previous month and are up 4.7% on the figures for last year. The report is significantly better than expected, giving grounds to suppose that the country’s economy could grow at a decent rate over the second quarter of 2015.

Euro/Dollar Trading at Key Support

At the American session the euro/dollar rate again approached the 1.1070 mark after the publication of the US Federal Reserve’s minutes. Sellers didn’t manage to break the support since the members of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) of the Fed expressed doubts about their readiness to raise interest rates in June.
