Although on Friday Yellen did not go to the Fed's current interest rate policy at the meeting of the Bankers in Jackson Hole, he did not hesitate to cut back on banking regulation too much. Experts said, however, that traders had a strong hold before the speech. The US government's announcement that a major tax reform was to be launched next week was also well received.
The Dow Jones index of default values ​​fluctuated between a high of 21'906 and a low of 21'812 counts. It goes off the market with an increase of 0.2 percent at 21,818 points. The broader S & P 500 also increased by 0.2 per cent and ended with 2443 points. The index of the technology hub Nasdaq advances 0.1 percent to 6265 points. On weekdays, the Dow and the S & P show a plus of 0.7 and for the Nasdaq of 0.8 percent.
Experts say the absence of monetary policy comments from the Fed's CEO is seen as confirmation that there will probably not be an early interest rate increase. ECB President Mario Draghi warned in his speech of the negative consequences of a foreclosure policy in the world trade. A change of direction towards protectionism would pose a significant risk to the productivity and growth of the global economy. The Italians did not give any information on the further course of the euro banknotes in his speech.
In New York, an interview of Gary Cohn, Donald Trump's National Economic Adviser, came good. Accordingly, the US President will be promoting his long-awaited tax reform from next week. Many companies are hoping for better business conditions by rebuilding the American tax system. Trump and the Congress are under pressure because the Republican, despite a majority of his party in both chambers, was unable to implement the promised health reform.
The hurricane "Harvey", which is approaching the US, played a role in the individual values. Titles of oil companies and other companies from the energy sector such as Chevron and Schlumberger are increasing, as crude oil prices. Chevron shares are up by just under 1 percent, and Schlumberger shares by 1.5 percent.

The Swiss stock exchange has hardly moved on the Friday until the appearance of US banknotechef Janet Yellen at the central bank meeting in Jackson Hole. Then the courses slipped. Yellen did not comment on the US monetary policy as hoped for, but above all on the regulation of banks and financial stability. The SMI is trading 0.4 percent lower at 8906 points. The leading index rose by just under 0.4 percent on the previous week.
For the default values, the losers are in the excess. "It seems quite a bit random," a trader comments on the course. The shares of Lonza are leading the market with a plus of 0.6 percent at 237.80 francs, after temporarily rising to a record high of 239.90 francs.
Credit Suisse shares are still at the forefront, with a plus of 0.5 percent. The shares of Rivalin UBS, on the other hand, fell by 0.2 per cent.
The heavy-weight pharmaceuticals give some terrain. The Roche shares are losing 0.2 percent, while Novartis shares are down 0.3 percent. The shares of Nestlé, the food giant, are weakening by 1.0 per cent and are thus placing a significant strain on the SMI.
The business was more lively in the broad market with shares of smaller and medium-sized companies, which published interim reports. U-blox shares are up 9.5 percent. The GPS chip maker has achieved less profit in the first half of the year, however, the business forecasts for the current year but reaffirms.
The share of the pharmaceutical supplier Bachem is 4.2 percent. After a rather disappointing first half-year, the company expressed a positive outlook in the second half of the year, says a trader.
Oerlikon shares are losing 3.3 percent. Mainfirst took the recommendation for the plant manufacturer on "Underperform" from "Outperform" back.
The Sunrise shares are pushing 4.1 percent into the negative after the jump from the previous day in the wake of a good interim report. (Read the detailed exchange commentary on Friday.)

After the lack of statements on the monetary policy of Fed chief Janet Yellen at the bench top summit in Jackson Hole, the dollar has come under the wheels. The euro rose by 0.6 per cent to 1.1867 dollars on the Friday afternoon after publication of the speech manuscript. Previously, he had been at 1.1790 dollars.

"By omitting monetary policy comments, the market feels confident in its assessment and does not expect interest rates to rise soon," explained Commerzbank expert Antje Praefcke. Market participants had hoped to see when the Fed began to cut back on the bloated balance sheet and whether it would raise interest again this year. In Yellens' speech, however, the focus was on banking regulation and financial stability.
The US stock markets expanded their price gains somewhat.

Immediately before the eagerly awaited speech of US central bank chief Janet Yellen, the American stock exchanges on Friday with profits in the trade started. Market players are hoping to see when the Fed begins to cut the bloated balance sheet and whether it will raise interest rates again this year. Good on Wall Street is an interview by Gary Cohn, the top economic consultant of President Donald Trump. Trump will be promoting a tax reform from next week. Cohn also denied speculation that he could resign.
The Dow Jones index with the default values ​​opened 0.3 percent in plus at 21,842 points. The broader S & P 500 wins 0.3 percent to 2447 meters. The Nasdaq technology index is up 0.4 percent to 6293.
For the individual values, the week-end is mainly geared towards energy companies, because Hurricane "Harvey" is heading to the coast of Texas, where many oil companies are located.

"Draghi will probably try to weaken the euro slightly," said a trader. At the end of the ECB's monthly bond purchases, however, he is unlikely to say anything against it.
The winners and the losers held the balance for the standard values. Credit Suisse shares rose by 0.9 percent. The shares of Rivale UBS increased by 0.3 percent. The shares of Lonza were up 0.6 percent higher at 238 francs, after temporarily rising to a record high of 239.90 francs. Nestlé's shares of the food giant weakened by 0.7 percent.

The U-blox shares are up on the Swiss stock market with an above-average volume of up to 9 percent. As negative surprises did not materialize and the outlook for the full year was confirmed, investors are picking up again after the weak trend. "After the warning at the beginning of the year there were many doubts as to whether the company can maintain its goals," said a trader. Many investors have bet against the stock. "But now U-blox has confirmed the ambitious goals." This triggered cover sales.
The management's outlook for the year as a whole, as well as the dollar exchange rate, which was budgeted by U-blox, of CHF 1.02, The last year was at this level. Since then, the dollar has weakened sharply. Accordingly, the ZKB states that the assumption for the exchange rate is ambitious. For the business of U-blox the dollar movement is very relevant, but more than 80% of the sales are in the US currency (see also today's article from the cash insider).

Japan's stock markets have grown due to the stable yen on Friday. The deal was ahead of the tense-eulogized speeches by Fed chief Janet Yellen and ECB president Mario Draghi at the note-maker meeting in Jackson Hole.
