The day before the start of an eagerly awaited meeting of central bankers in the USA, the Dax continued to rise. It rose by 0.33 percent to 15,760 points in early trading on Xetra on Wednesday. It would be the third trading day in a row with premiums for the Dax. The leading index is thus moving upwards from the recent low of just under 15,500 points. Support for equities comes from the bond market, where the US Treasury yield rally continues to pause.

The MDax of medium-sized titles rose in the morning by 0.26 percent to 27,310 points. The leading eurozone index, the EuroStoxx 50, rose at a similar rate.
