MADRID, 14 September (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Ibex 35 opened Wednesday’s session with flat behavior (+0.05%), causing the select to stand at 8,067.8 integers as of 9:01 am after Wall Street posted losses after a worse-than-expected CPI for the United States and on a day marked by results from Inditex, which rose nearly 5% on the day of its results.
In particular, inflation in the United States last August was 8.3%, a fall of two tenths compared to July, chaining two months of moderation. Core inflation, which comes from calculating food and energy prices, was 6.3% in August, up four tenths.
After reading this data, Wall Street responded with losses of 3.94% on the Dow Jones, 4.32% on the S&P 500 and 5.16% on the Nasdaq.
In this way, after closing yesterday down 1.59%, the Madrid selection reopened in the green, above the psychological level of 8,000 integers.
In the first bars of this Wednesday’s session, the biggest gains came from Inditex, which rose 4.74% to €22.99 after reporting its results, with record profits and sales in its first half, after 1,794 millions, 41% more.
Next to Inditex, Enagás (+0.57%), Caixabank (+0.53%), Merlín Properties (+0.17%) and Siemens Gamesa (+0.08%) were listed in green, while on the opposite side Fluidra (-1.81%), IAG (-1.72%), Meliá Hotels (-1.25%) and ArcelorMittal (-1.09%) were settled.
The rest of the European stock markets opened with a minus of 0.1% for Frankfurt and Paris and 0.5% for London.
Likewise, the price of a barrel of Brent oil, a reference for the old continent, stood at $92, down 1%, while Texas stood at $86, after falling 1%.
Finally, the euro was priced at 0.9983 “greenbacks” against the dollar, while the risk premium was 113 basis points and the yield on the 10-year Spanish bond was 2.839%.
