Chile’s main index, S&P IPSA, started Thursday’s session with a slight increase, rising by 0.2% to 6,657.85 points. The largest increases were recorded by Parque Arauco (1.39%) and Enel Américas (1.2%), and the market, following the April CPI, is betting on another rate cut of 50 basis points, although some warn against an even smaller cut.

Meanwhile, Falabella continued to gain on the stock, rising 1.14% to $2,806 per share, after rising more than 4% in the previous session to its highest price of 2021, driven by surprising results in the last quarter, which included earnings and a downgrade financial debt to EBITDA.

On the other hand, the main US indices started the session with mixed results. On Wall Street, the Nasdaq Composite fell 0.25%, the Dow Jones rose 0.14%, while the S&P 500 remained unchanged.

Before the opening bell, U.S. jobless claims rose more than expected last week, to 231,000, while a Bloomberg survey had predicted 214,000, raising expectations of a potential Federal Reserve rate cut.

In Europe, indices recorded gains after the Bank of England (BoE) kept the interest rate at 5.25%. However, two members of the management body voted for the reduction, one more than at the previous meeting. In this scenario, the British FTSE 100 increased by 0.29% and the German DAX gained 0.86%.

In Asia, Japan’s Nikkei closed down 0.36%.
