April is a the most important month, from a financial point of view, although the budget process begins in January and then proposed in April as president of the budget.

    Since the deficit increases Treasury notes and bonds sold to finance state activities. If demand remains constant and supply increases, the cost of tools is reduced. Or, conversely, when the deficit increased (or there is an excess). If demand remains constant and supply decreases, the price of government debt securities, should be increased.

    Lower prices for bonds and notes equates to an increase in yield for the investor. Higher yields in the market means that the government should issue Treasury securities at higher interest rates. When these risk-free rates rise, the effect is seen in all debt markets, and the high interest rate environment is born. This is bearish on the stock markets.
