The stock exchanges in New York are heading for a slightly higher opening on Wednesday. Once again, Boeing can count on interest because of the malaise surrounding the 737 MAX devices, as a result of which the share has already lost considerable value in recent days. Furthermore, the Brexit problems continue to demand the attention of investors on Wall Street and there are some macroeconomic figures from the United States.
Boeing seems to be opening lower again. The pressure on the aircraft manufacturer to keep the 737 MAX on the ground in the US is also increasing, after a large number of countries have already decided not to let the aircraft fly after two deadly crashes in a short time. The American aviation authority FAA and airlines are under pressure from politicians and travelers not to let the aircraft fly. On the stock market, Boeing lost nearly $ 27 billion in value in two days.
