Shares Are Calm

US equities show no significant dynamic, staying at recently hit maximums. Investors became more careful while waiting inflation and retail sales numbers, that might provide some hints over possible rate hikes. Meanwhile, the Eurozone unemployment hit 8-year minimum of 8.7 in November. German Industrial Production increased 3.4%. Trade surplus expanded to the yearly maximum of 22.3B euros. As we may judge, the economy in the bloc remains firm. Still, the single currency is weak, as well as Bitcoin. The cryptocurrency dropped to 15% yesterday but then recovered and now it’s trading some 2% lower.
