Jun 12, 2018

European Markets

  • European equities are struggling to find direction today following the US-North Korea summit that seemed to have a positive outcome but provided few material strategic details. Focus has now shifted to the ECB June meeting on Thursday, during which potential rate hikes and a wind down of the ECB’s QE program will be discussed. UK unemployment data for April matched expectations. Italian treasuries continue to advance, while German treasuries show continued weakness

  • Utilities (+0.55%), industrials (+0.20%), and information technology stocks (+0.15%) are the best performers in the Euro Stoxx 600

  • According to a Reuters report, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) expects the German economy to grow 2.1% over the remainder of CY2018 and through CY2019. The OECD projects German exports to increase by 4.5% over CY2018 and CY2019, despite the negative effect of US imposed tariffs
  • UK ILO unemployment for April came in at 4.2%, which was in-line with the consensus
