There were no major stats to change the mood from Monday’s session, leaving dip buyers to deliver support on the day.

For the majors, the upside came in spite of rating agency Standard & Poor’s stating that an Evergrande default was likely.

The Stats

It’s a was a particularly quiet day on the Eurozone economic calendar. There were no major stats to provide the majors with direction on the day.

From the U.S

Economic data was limited to August housing sector numbers that had a muted impact on market risk sentiment.

The Market Movers

For the DAX: It was a mixed day for the auto sector on Tuesday. BMW and Volkswagen rose by 1.14% and by 0.97%, respectively, with Continental ending the day up by 0.47%. Daimler bucked the trend, however, falling by 0.04%.

It was also a mixed day for the banks. Deutsche Bank fell by 1.32%, while Commerzbank rose by 1.19%.

From the CAC, it was a mixed day for the banks. Soc Gen and Credit Agricole fell by 0.33% and by 0.09% respectively, while BNP Paribas rose by 0.41%.

On Tuesday, the NASDAQ rose by 0.22%, while the Dow and S&P500 ended the day down by 0.15% and by 0.08% respectively.

The Day Ahead

It’s yet another particularly quiet day ahead on the Eurozone’s economic calendar.

There are no major stats to provide the European majors with direction mid-week.

From the U.S there are also no major stats to consider later in the session, leaving the markets in limbo ahead of the FOMC policy decision and projections due out after the European close.

Updates on Evergrande will also be in focus going into the European open.
