❗The new coalition in Germany rejects Merkel's proposal to introduce a lockdown
Recently information appeared that the ruling coalition in Germany (SPD, Greens and FDP) rejected Merkel's proposal to introduce a lockdown in the country. It is worth mentioning that Merkel is resigning from her position because a coalition agreement was reached.
Anyway, it is worth remembering that the DAX is under considerable supply pressure, due to the expectation of faster changes in the monetary policy in the US, but also in Europe. In the US, faster tapering is expected, given the high inflation and better data from the labor market, which could also accelerate interest rate hikes. In turn, after yesterday's good PMI data from European economies investors now expect a rate hike at the end of 2022. Among bankers, the ECB is also starting to talk about a bigger inflation problem, although the consensus still shows no need for changes in the near future.
