The Ibex 35 gains strength in the last day of September and starts with a rebound of 0.5%, up to 9,477 points, insufficient, for the moment, to end the month positively.

London advances by 0.7%, Paris rebounds by 0.6%, Frankfurt rises by 0.6% and Milan accelerates by 0.15%. The market is awaiting the publication this Friday of the CPI in the eurozone and the PCE price index in the United States, the indicator most followed by the Federal Reserve.

Both Democrats and Republicans have supported a procedural step to begin debating the bill, which would extend public administration funding temporarily for six weeks, until November 17.
