Statements from the European Central Bank (ECB) and news feeds from the European Union (EU) about Brexit were closely followed. First, ECB President Christine Lagarde said that while inflation in the Eurozone will continue to remain at negative levels in the coming months, they will carefully evaluate all incoming data during the current period when uncertainty rises, including its developments in exchange rate changes. Ignazio Visco, a member of the ECB's Governing Council, said that the recent appreciation of euro assets had worried them, and that the ECB should make moves if this increase in value deflects its inflation target. Pablo Hernandez de Cos, a member of the ECB Governing Council, argued that fiscal stimulus should be maintained and that steps should not be taken if more stimulus is needed. On the other side, EC Vice-President Maros Sefcovic said work must accelerate to reach a deal in Brexit talks with the UK, and the UK is far from where they would agree. EU diplomats have expressed more optimism about the talks after positive remarks by UK Cabinet Minister Michael Gove on a deal. Meanwhile, according to the EU document, the rule of law would be a prerequisite for benefiting from the 750 billion euro EU Recovery Fund. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, on the other hand, stressed that if the fight against coronavirus goes on the same course, high cases can be seen as in other countries, while interventions urgently need to control the number of cases. In addition, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire noted that despite the increase in coronavirus cases, re-quarantine practices across the country are not being considered. In August, employment index rose from 95.4 points to 96.3 points, its highest level since March, according to data from the Munich-based Ifo.
We ended the US markets with a steady stream of news. President Donald Trump expressed optimism about the presidential election, scheduled for November 3, saying, "we will win a tremendous victory in the election." Trump also said claims by the New York Times, one of America's leading newspapers, that he paid only $ 750 in taxes for the years 2016 and 2017 did not reflect the truth. After meeting with his Greek counterpart, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called for a peaceful settlement of sovereignty disputes in the Eastern Mediterranean, stressing that everything will be done to maintain stability in the region. Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester, on the other hand, argued that the U.S. economy would not fully recover unless steps were taken to make growth more inclusive. In addition, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said they could find common ground on the new stimulus package, but the Trump administration should come up with a larger proposal. Looking at the macroeconomic calendar, Dallas manufacturing business index rose from 8.0 points to 13.6 points in September, according to the Fed's data.
In Britain, the remarks from Boris Johnson's cabinet were significant. British Cabinet Minister Michael Gove, speaking after a Joint Committee meeting, the first leg of Brexit talks between the EU and the UK, said they had a good meeting and needed to make further progress. Gove added that he hoped his other talks would go well and that they wanted to implement the separation agreement in full. A spokesman for PM Boris Johnson said that negotiations with the EU have entered the final stage and there is the possibility of further informal talks with the EU, noting that although there are serious differences, there is a possible chance of a possible deal. UK Trade Secretary Liz Truss said they had made serious progress on a trade deal with the US, noting that mid-2021 on trade negotiations with the EU was not the final date and that their trade would move away from the EU in time. On the other hand, British media reported that the government planned to introduce a 2-week emergency measure on social life in London and the Northern Region of England to reduce the sudden increase in coronavirus cases.
