Cac 40: The Paris Stock Exchange posts its best weekly performance since the end of June, up 3%

(BFM-Berse) – Up 0.25% on Friday, the Paris Stock Exchange posted a weekly increase of 3% to 6,200 points. This performance was all the more remarkable as this week’s news was not necessarily conducive to a recovery in the indices.

This week’s news has been very busy. Between fears about Russian gas supplies, the eruption of a political crisis in Italy and the ECB’s first interest rate hike since 2011, and disappointing results from the big American tech experts, operators were at a loss as to where to turn. However, the CAC 40 ended this difficult week up 0.25% to 6,216.82 points with a summer trading volume of 2.9 billion euros.

With a plus of 3% on a weekly basis, the Paris Stock Exchange achieved its best performance since the end of June (+3.26%). A gain that also allows it to pare its year-to-date decline to 13.2%.

The other social networks listed in New York cannot be surpassed, Meta or Pinterest collapsed sharply at the close of trading on the European markets. Twitter escaped the decline, although results fell short of expectations as markets welcomed the surge in the number of monetizable users.

The US Federal Reserve, in turn, will give its verdict on its monetary policy next week. Operators firmly believe that the Federal Reserve is headed for a 0.75 percentage point hike in its benchmark interest rate, not 1%, after a first tightening of this magnitude last June. It will follow in the footsteps of the ECB, which for the first time since 2011 decided to hike interest rates by 0.5% instead of 0.25% to counteract record inflation, which hit 8.6% in the euro zone in June annual base reached .
