DAX 40: Market Sentiment drags DAX further down
European Equities opened lower this morning with any hopes of plateauing inflation wildly off the mark. This follows the European Central Bank confirming late last week that it intends to hike interest rates by 25 basis points in July, with another rate increase expected in September.
Focus now shifts to the FOMC Economic projections and the Federal Reserve interest rate decisionthat is expected to take place on Wednesday. At the time of writing, the German DAX has declined by approximately 200 points since the start of the European Session.

DAX 40 Daily Chart- June 13,2022
From a longer-term view,the Daily Chart shows the decline from the key psychological level of 15000 and is currently trading below trendline support (taken from the March low). If the downtrend remains intact, further downward pressure could see the 13270 level coming back into play, leaving the door open for the key psychological level of 13000.
FTSE 100:UK growth slumps, BOE comes into focus
The FTSE 100 has continued its decline from last week, posting its largest weekly fall in 3 months. With UK GDP (April) coming in below expectations, pressure may mount on the Bank of England to hike rates further as inflation jumped to a four-decade high of 9% in April. All eyes now shift to the Federal Reserve and the BOE (Bank of England) rate decisions on Wednesday and Thursday for further direction and policy statements.

The yield on 10-year US Treasury notes hit 3.24%, the most since October 2018. Traders expect the Fed to tighten by 175bps by September, if that happens it will be the first time the Fed has taken such draconian steps since 1994.
