Una cosa sono ciò che propalano i media ed un’altra del tutto differente ciò che sta succedendo.


Molto semplicemente, i capitali stanno disinvestendo dall’Europa e si stanno indirizzando sia negli Stati Uniti sia in Cina, alla ricerca di collocamenti più sicuri e maggiormente redditizi.


Né si pensi che questo fenomeno sia terminato.


Il 23 gennaio il Ftse Mib valeva 23,890 ed ora 18,835: un discesa del -21.16%.


La Germania sta avviandosi al chaos politico e tutta l’Unione Europea è politicamente dilacerata: non è un clima atto a richiamare capitali.


Dax a 11,528, -0.53%.

Bloomberg. 2018-10-19. Europe Stocks Fall After China Rebound; Oil Gains: Markets Wrap

– Dollar Index steady near its strongest since mid-2017

– Italian government debt extend losses; Treasuries steady


European stocks struggled as investors weighed the outlook for corporate profits against the positive mood from China, where equities rebounded from a four-year low as financial regulators vowed to keep risks under control. Treasuries and the dollar were steady.

The Stoxx Europe 600 Index edged lower, with carmakers declining after Michelin warned of declining sales. Futures on the Dow, S&P and Nasdaq pointed to a higher U.S. open. The MSCI Asia Pacific Index slipped as declines in Tokyo, Mumbai and Taiwan countered gains in Shanghai and Hong Kong, with Chinese officials pledging support for the country’s stock markets. Italian debt fell as leaders of European Union nations warned the populist government in Rome its budget won’t fly. The pound fluctuated as Brexit negotiations inched forward.

China’s efforts to stem a selloff came as growth data for the world’s second biggest economy registered slightly below expectations, as the trade showdown with the U.S. starts to bite. A slew of other risks cloud the outlook, and investors are wading through company results as they grapple with Brexit, Italy’s confrontation with the EU over its budget and worsening American-Saudi relations over the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Elsewhere, oil recovered from near the lowest level in almost a month after expanding American stockpiles overshadowed tensions between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia over the disappearance of a prominent kingdom critic.
