The Dax, which started the week in a moderately friendly manner, hardly moved at all on Tuesday. In the first minutes of trading, the leading German index rose by 0.02 percent to 15,240.83 points. The MDax of medium-sized companies lost 0.13 percent to 24,987.71 points. For the Eurozone benchmark EuroStoxx 50, things went downhill slightly.

Thanks to the lack of escalation of the conflict between Israel and the radical Islamic Hamas, the stock markets have so far been relatively stable. Despite all diplomatic efforts, the fighting continues. After Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz this Tuesday, US President Joe Biden will also travel to Israel the next day.
