The leading German index gained 0.17 percent to 15,752.91 points in the first few minutes of Xetra trading. The MDax of medium-sized stocks, on the other hand, fell by 0.42 percent to 27,339.25 points. The leading eurozone index, the EuroStoxx 50, rose by 0.4 percent.

In the middle of the week, the attention on the market is initially focused on numerous quarterly reports, before the interest rate decision by the US Federal Reserve comes into focus in the evening. After strong increases since March 2022, the markets are now expecting an increase of just 0.25 percentage points.
