Today's Stock Exchanges, May 24th. US debt, impasse risk. Weak markets in Asia
MILAN - The markets are once again watching with concern the negotiations between the White House and the Republicans to raise the US debt ceiling and avoid a historic default: when the speaker Kevin McCarthy left the meeting on Tuesday afternoon, he said that the agreement is still to be found and one of his key negotiators, Garret Graves, has made it clear that there are no new leaders on the agenda immediately. Stocks in Asia have reacted weakly to this non-news, while futures on Wall Street are holding up. The collapse of the New Zealand dollar should be noted, with the Central Bank announcing the achievement of the peak on rates.
