📆 Monday, January 22
► The week ahead is packed with key events, including the Bank of Japan's policy meeting, earnings reports from major companies like Netflix, Tesla, and IBM, and various economic data releases such as US GDP and Eurozone PMIs.
► European and US stock futures rose, extending the rally in global equities that pushed the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 Index to record-highs. In Europe, the Stoxx 600 index witnessed over a 0.55% increase, with banking, real estate, and tech sectors leading the charge. The gains are driven by strong gains of US technology companies in particular chip and AI-related companies. However, Chinese stocks continue to disappoint and fell amid concerns over the country's economic recovery.
► The S&P 500's surge of about 35% since October 2022 marks a significant rebound, with the index surpassing its previous closing high of 4,796.56. This achievement positions it as the last of the three major US equity benchmarks to close at a record level.
