Global equities

In the US, indices were down on Thursday (22 September) due to the Fed’s suggestion that interest rates were not likely to come down anytime soon. However, the healthcare sector was up as the FDA approved a cancer drug by Eli Lilly.

While the Dow Jones ended flat, the S&P500 was down 0.5%, and the NASDAQ was down 1%.

In Europe, many central banks joined the Fed in increasing interest rates. European investors also went on a selling spree. Accordingly, the Stoxx 600 was down 1.8%. The FTSE 100 fell 1.1%. 

Asian markets were also down on Friday. The Shanghai Composite was down 0.66%, Hong Kong’s Heng Sang was lower by 1.15% and Japan’s Nikkei 225 closed at 0.55%.

Oil prices today

Oil prices fell on Friday amid recession fears and a stronger US dollar. However, losses were capped by supply concerns after Moscow’s new mobilisation campaign in its war against Ukraine.

Brent crude was down 46 cents, to US$90.00 per barrel, while WTI crude futures were down 46 cents, to US$83.03.
