Analysts said that the risk appetite in global stock markets remained low due to the increasingly hawkish direction of the US Federal Reserve (Fed) officials, the re-intensifying conflicts in the Russia-Ukraine war, and the ongoing concerns about the new type of corona virus outbreak in China.
Pointing out that the domestic stock markets are positively differentiated, analysts stated that housing starts and construction permits to be announced in the USA came to the fore in today’s data calendar.
