22%, at 7812 points, driven by Carrefour (+4.9%), Alstom (+4.4%) and Pernod Ricard (+1.5%).

In addition to the Fed's 'minutes' expected in the next few hours, many traders are now awaiting Nvidia's results, which will be published after the Wall Street close.

Analysts are expecting the computer giant's quarterly results to exceed market expectations (5-fold increase in profit), and for the group to raise its annual targets (above $60 billion in annual sales, as this figure is already in the market).

Any disappointment could be enough to trigger a correction, given that Nvidia's share price has gained 40% since the start of the year and more than 230% over the past 12 months (the stock pays between 20 and 25 times its sales, based on the most optimistic expectations).

Christopher Dembik, Investment Strategy Advisor at Pictet Asset Management, points out that over the past eight years, Nvidia has exceeded consensus expectations on seven occasions. This will certainly be the case again", he prophesies.
