European stock markets opened higher on February 23

The main European stock markets opened this Thursday, February 23, with upward indices, while investors remain attentive to inflation in Europe and the GDP of the United States.

The indices rose at a rate of more than 3 decimal points and in this way the bearish chain that has been weighing down since Friday of last week was broken, says Investing.

In Link Securities they assure that the European and American stock markets have entered a consolidation phase. “It is normal that, after having risen so much in such a short time, investors choose to take some profits, especially in the best-performing stocks,” point.

Among the most important data for today is the CPI in the Euro Zone corresponding to the month of January. An increase of 8.6% is expected; and the publication of the quarterly GDP in the US with a growth estimate of 2.9%.

The DAX rose timidly above 15,399.89 points, the FTSE -100 fell 0.2%, the CAC-40 advanced 0.10%, above 7,306.25 points, the Eurostoxx 50 rose 0.3% while the FTSE MIB opened at 27,208 points after registering advances of 0.3% at the opening.

Among the business data that stand out is Bill Gates’ acquisition of 3.76% of the Heineken brewery for US$ 902 million. Of the total shares purchased, 6.65 million were purchased in a personal capacity and the other 4.18 million shares were for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
