Shares of the textile group rose more than 3.5% after announcing an 80% net profit growth in the first quarter. Grifols, Meliá, and PharmaMar are also among the most upside, with gains of around 1%. Rovi, Red Eléctrica and Solaria are the most landing.

However, US stocks rose to close higher for the second day in a row, which improved the mood in Asia as the Nikkei rose 1%. The Australian share market is regaining its positions, 0.7%, after falling about 1.5% on Tuesday after the central bank unexpectedly raised interest rates to their highest level in 22 years, and indicated that more adjustments are coming.

Tomorrow, the European Central Bank meets and markets expect it to at least lay the groundwork for a quick rate hike, if not start with a small hike. “I think the increases coming from central banks, or front loading are really positive because it will allow us to curb inflationary pressures,” said Trine Nguyen, chief economist at Natixis in Hong Kong, adding that markets could correct from an “exaggerated reaction” on Tuesday. .
