The stock exchanges in New York are expected to open on Tuesday with small price movements. Investors on Wall Street process figures about inflation in the United States and look at the Brexit troubles in Britain. Furthermore, Boeing remains in the spotlight after the fatal crash with the 737 MAX plane and the news that many airlines and countries are holding the device to the ground. On Monday, the Boeing share went on sale.

Consumer prices in the US climbed 1.5 percent in February compared to a year earlier. In January inflation was 1.6 percent and economists had expected inflation to remain stable. Consumer prices in the US rose by 0.2 percent on a monthly basis.

The British House of Commons will vote on Tuesday again about the brexit deal of Prime Minister Theresa May. The UK will leave the European Union in eighteen days, but it is highly questionable whether Prime Minister May’s deal will be approved Tuesday. The conservative leader suffered another historic defeat in January when the parliament massively opposed its agreement with Brussels.


Boeing is in the red before the show. On Monday the price of the aircraft manufacturer fell by more than 5 percent. On Sunday, a Boeing aircraft crashed into Ethiopia shortly after taking off. This is the second fatal crash in a short time. An accident with the same type of device took place in Indonesia last October.

Boeing is now going to implement a software update at the aircraft. The American aviation authority FAA expressed its confidence in the 737 MAX and declared the aircraft airworthy. In more and more countries, however, distrust is growing and the device must remain on the ground, including in China, Singapore and Australia.


In terms of business results, the bustle of the American numerical season is largely over. The seller of sporting goods Dick’s Sporting Goods is approaching a lower opening after disappointing figures and expectations.

The stock markets in New York closed with a profit on Monday, helped by better than expected US store sales. The leading Dow-Jones index finished 0.8 percent higher at 25,650.88 points. The broad S&P 500 rose 1.5 percent to 2783.30 points and the Nasdaq technology fair rose 2 percent to 7558.06 points.
