European Equity Market Handover – 23rd April 2019

Blue avatar for FOREX.com guest contributors
By :  ,  

  • European markets look groggy after the long Easter weekend here and disappointing earnings are contributing a negative bias
  • There were also headwinds from speculation that stronger-than-forecast growth and indicators in China could put a damper on stimulus. This weighed on Asia-Pacific markets and pressure continues to carry
  • A snap election in Spain, set for Sunday 28th April, unsettled the country's benchmark, helping explain its underperformance

Corporate News

  • A below-forecast set of results and guidance from Umicore are casting a cloud. The group generates a high proportion of revenue from China; a poor omen ahead of earnings from heavyweights like Deutsche Bank this week
