Small increase in the USA
American stock markets started the day with a moderate rise, the Dow went up by 0.2 percent, while the S&P 500 rose by 0.3 percent and the Nasdaq strengthened by 0.2 percent. The rise is supported by a fall in government bond yields after investors turned to traditional safe-haven assets amid the Israeli conflict. These moves reflect the bond market’s first reaction to the Israel-Hamas conflict, as the bond market was closed yesterday for Columbus Day.
Big rise in Europe
In the early afternoon, the mood on the leading European stock exchanges is getting better and better, in addition to the DAX rising by 1.8 percent, the CAC rose by 1.6 percent and the FTSE 100 by 1.5 percent. It seems that the markets – at least temporarily – were able to “shake off” the uncertainty that came after the outbreak of the Israeli-Palestinian war, but any unfavorable development can lead to serious movements in either direction.
The market reacts to the IMF forecast
After the excellent opening of the market, the gain on the Hungarian stock market melted away significantly, BUX is currently only 0.2 percent higher.
The sudden deterioration in mood can be attributed to the fact that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) downgraded its economic forecast for Hungary, so after the previous 0.5 percent growth, GDP is expected to fall by 0.3 percent this year. The Valutaalap is expecting higher inflation at the end of the year this year than previously expected, and according to them, even at the end of 2024, the rate of price increase will not be below 5 percent.
Europe is getting higher and higher
After the opening, the leading European stock indices are gaining momentum, the German DAX already rose by 1.5 percent in the first hour of trading.
The French CAC is up 1.2 percent, and the English FTSE is up 1 percent.

He jumps into the Ra
Rába’s shares are already up 3.5 percent after the opening, after the company announced that it will hold a general meeting on November 9, at which shareholders can decide, among other things, on the approval of real estate sales and the renovation of the 67,000 m2 plant hall in Győr.
A definite rise on the continent’s leading stock exchanges

What can be expected on the macro front?
The most important data of the week comes to us this morning, as the KSH publishes the inflation statistics for September. Based on preliminary expectations, largely due to base effects, there was a further significant decrease in the rate of price increase, the figure could even fall to around 12 percent. The announcement may even have an impact on the exchange rate of the forint, since inflationary prospects influence the Hungarian currency. The IMF’s recent World Economic Outlook (WEO) publication can also make today exciting. The International Monetary Fund now publishes its latest autumn macroeconomic forecast, as usual, in time for the annual general meeting, so it also reveals, among other things, how they see the Hungarian economy now.
