Fundamentals

Economy: European stocks are slipping following their biggest weekly rally since March as investors assess equity valuations and digest weak economic data from Germany – the Eurofirst 300 is losing 0.3%. Risk appetite is waning after figures revealed that German industrial output unexpectedly declined 1.8% between April and May in what is the biggest drop for more than two years. News that investor sentiment leapt in July across the Eurozone as a result of increasing ECB monetary support is doing little to support the mood. Despite the mildly cautious environment, highly rated sovereign debt yields are steady whilst gold is down 0.6% at $1,313/oz.
