The US indexes closed at modest losses, managing to recover a sharp share of the devaluations seen earlier in the session. The main catalyst for the recovery was the intervention of President Trump who said he would be willing to replace the Dodd-Frank law with another law.

This news was enough for the financial sector to end up with minimal losses (-0.07%), not reflecting the sharp decline in yields observed in recent sessions.

Theresa May's decision to call for elections in early June surprised investors yesterday, who only expected the elections to be held in 2020, as previously advocated by the British Prime Minister.
