Performance across equity markets was mixed as investors repriced the potential for a June/July US interest rate hike following the release of the April US Federal Reserve minutes. The minutes suggested that a rate hike is still very much a possibility should employment and inflation data continue to strengthen. Futures markets repriced the probability of such a move from 4% at the beginning of the week to a 30% chance by the end, and a 51% chance of a move by the July meeting, post the UK’s EU referendum.

The Japanese Nikkei 225 had a particularly strong week, rising 6.17% in US dollar terms as it bounced strongly from an oversold position and rising expectations of further stimulus from the Bank of Japan at its 28th April meeting.
