Markets show restraint ahead of Fed meeting minutes

Tuesday begins with a cautiously positive trend. After weak data from Asia, investors are hoping for more information on the Fed's course in the evening.

From Asia, the most important Asian indices such as the Nikkei and the Hang Seng provide moderately negative to neutral guidance on Tuesday. However, this appears to have little or no influence on the European indices. Shortly after the market opened, Germany's leading index, the DAX, was virtually unchanged, as was the Euro Stoxx 50.

A certain degree of restraint is expected on the stock market today, as many investors are eagerly awaiting the minutes of the US Federal Reserve's last meeting, which will be published this evening. After the Fed left interest rates unchanged again at the last meeting, investors are hoping that the FOMC minutes will provide information on the reasons behind the decision. In conjunction with the latest data on inflation and the US economy, a clear picture could emerge as to whether the cycle of interest rate hikes in the US may have come to an end. If investors' expectations are confirmed in the evening, the momentum of the past week could return to the markets.
