Shares in the US have fallen this morning on news of a sizeable hike in capital gains for wealthy Americans. Although not officially released, NAB’s Gavin Friend explains how the rumour was enough to send shares falling, after a fairly positive start to the session. The ECB was asked whether they would follow Canada’s lead in tapering bond purchases sooner, but there won’t be any change until the June 10th meeting. Then the ECB might change its approach, depending on progress on containing the virus. Todays, it’s a day for PMIs, with the flash numbers for April for the Eurozone, Germany, the UK and the US.
