European indices extended yesterday gains as investors focused on second-quarter earnings and expectations that the ECB will maintain its dovish tone during tomorrow’s meeting.

DAX 30 rose 1.36%, CAC40 gained 1.85% and FTSE 100 finished 1.75% higher.
US indices are also trading higher as upbeat earnings reports from Dow members Coca-Cola and Johnson & Johnson added to the bullish sentiment. On the other hand, Netflix earnings were lower-than-expected and third-quarter subscriber guidance disappointed. The risk appetite is reflected by solid performance of energy, travel-related and other cheap cyclical stocks. United Airlines expects a strong rebound in the industry, hoping for a complete return to demand in 2023. One of the highlights of the day was the EIA's oil stocks report. The data came as a surprise as US black gold inventories unexpectedly rose for the first time since May, although market consensus was pointing to a further decline. After the publication of the report upward move continued and WTI is currently trading 4% higher.
