European Stocks at Midday

Jun 08, 2018

European Markets

  • Risk-off sentiment in European equity markets is being driven by concerns about an expectedly turbulent G-7 meeting today, at which trade disputes will likely be in focus. Disappointing economic data out of France and Germany further dampened investor outlook in the region

  • Real estate (+0.42%) is the only sector in positive territory in the Euro Stoxx 600
  • Utilities (-0.90%), financials (-0.71%), and health care stocks (-0.50%) are the largest laggards today
  • Market breadth for the Euro Stoxx 600 is notably negative with 344 stocks declining, compared to 228 advances
  • Volume across European markets is 5.97% below its 10-day average
  • Germany’s trade surplus in April was €19.4 billion, which was below the consensus (€20.3 billion) and was lower than March’s surplus (€21.6 billion).
  • Industrial production in Germany for April fell 1.0% M/M, in contrast to expectations for a 0.2% M/M increase
  • French industrial production fell 0.5% M/M in April, though production was expected to rise by 0.4%
