The ECB shines gold and supports the euro.  Oil continues to sink - markets in a minute

Europe points to a small rise on a historic day. Asia ended in red

Europe points to positive momentum on the decisive day when the European Central Bank (ECB) announces its first interest rate hike in 11 years. On Thursday, the major Asian indices ended trading in the red zone.

Hours before the ECB meeting, the governors of the Bank of Japan met announcing that they would keep the policy without raising interest rates, as they have done so far, while central banks around the world have been raising interest rates to control the rapid rise in inflation.

The earnings season continues to weigh on investors, not least as higher-than-expected earnings are rekindling market optimism, according to analysts polled by Bloomberg. This Wednesday it was Tesla’s turn, which recorded better-than-expected results in the second quarter of the year.

In Japan, Topix lost 0.3% and Nikkei lost 0.1%. In China, in Hong Kong, the Hang Seng falls 1.2% and Shanghai depreciates 0.5%. Finally, in South Korea, Kospi rose by 0.5%. Futures for the Euro Stoxx 50 rose 0.4%.

Investors are now eyeing the ECB, which is expected to raise interest rates by 25 or 50 basis points to curb inflation, which is at a multi-year high in the eurozone. Investors will continue to look for clues about the anti-fragmentation tool being developed by the monetary authorities.

Gás. Vendedores de garrafas corrigem preços

















Gas bottle sellers have adjusted prices that are not in line with government regulations limiting those values, said the National Energy Sector Organization (ENSE), which returned yesterday to review activity.

After conducting the first inspection on Tuesday, which found “high non-compliance” in 23.4% of outlets, the organization again carried out “108 inspection actions in Castelo Branco, Portalegre, Santarem, Evora and, in the municipalities of Cascais, Oeiras and Sintra in the Lisbon area, focusing on petrol stations, hypermarkets/supermarkets and other retail outlets.”

During this second check, ENSE found “seven violations (corresponding to 6.5% of the actions taken) in the selling prices (from 0.36 euros to 3.39 euros for T3 bottles and 6.92 euros for T5 bottles) of this type of product.” But he left a guarantee: “Of these actions, it was established mainly the correction of inappropriate prices, namely in relation to inflated amounts charged in several hypermarkets of the same brand.”

The maximum prices per bottle of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) set by the government came into effect on Tuesday, saving almost 3.2 euros on a 13 kilograms (kg) bottle of butane.
