Fundamentals

Economy: European stock markets are advancing into virgin territory amid growing optimism regarding the global economic recovery – the Eurofirst 300 is up 0.2%. Along with last week’s strong US jobs report, growth prospects are being underpinned by an upward revision to 1Q Japanese GDP figures and data pointing to rising Chinese exports in May. Building on the broadly positive mood are increasing hopes of a resolution to the Ukrainian crisis which is helping Moscow’s Micex add 0.7% after having surged a total of 4.9% in the last five sessions. Benchmark US and German borrowing costs are ticking slightly higher although remain low by historic standards, whilst Eurozone periphery debt yields fall to fresh record lows.
