Форекс: Евро торгуется с понижением  Этим утром евро, продолжая свою вчерашнюю динамику, торгуется с понижением относительно большинства главных валют. Снижение было вызвано новостью о том, что Бундесбанк готов поддержать меры ЕЦБ в виде введения отрицательных процентных ставок и покупки активов, если инфляция в регионе будет оставаться на низких уровнях. В связи с этим, окончательный показатель инфляции потребительских цен Германии окажется сегодня в центре внимания. Кроме того, будут опубликованы данные по промышленному производству Еврозоны, которые, согласно ожиданиям, должны сказать о месячном снижении в марте.

Dentsu (4324) пошли вниз на прогнозе о 20-процентном падении годовой прибыли. Пессимистичный прогноз чистой прибыли на 2014 год и прибыли на 2015 год привели к снижению акций Nikon (7731). Тогда как, Kubota (6326), напротив, пошли вверх после того, как прогноз чистой прибыли на 2014 год и прибыли на 2015 год превысил оценки аналитиков. Nexon (3659) подорожали ввиду планов компании обратной покупки акций на 10 миллиардов японских иен.

В то же время, доход и прибыль группы за первый квартал превысили ожидания экспертов. Пессимистичный прогноз на первый квартал привёл к падению Take-Two Interactive Software (TTWO) на четыре процента; однако, доход и прибыль компании снизились в четвёртом квартале меньше, чем ожидалось. YuMe Inc. (YUME) подешевели на 7,1 процента на объявлении компании об уходе главного финансового директора Тимоти Лэйхи (Timothy Laehy) 23 мая 2014 года.

Глава РБНЗ Грэм Уилер (Graeme Wheeler) сообщил, что цены на жильё в Новой Зеландии остались на завышенном уровне, и дальнейший курс по ужесточению политики будет зависеть от курса новозеландского доллара. Южнокорейская безработица наблюдает повышение Скорректированный на сезонность уровень безработицы Южной Кореи в апреле поднялся до 3,7 процента с 3,5 процента марта. Материал предоставлен Saxo Bank
