Fundamentals

Economy: European stocks are struggling for direction as investors weigh the uncertainty blighting foreign currency markets and an improving geopolitical backdrop – the Eurofirst 300 is flat. The creation of a new government in Iraq and the postponement by the EU of fresh sanctions planned against Russia are doing little to support risk appetite levels. Benchmark US Treasury yields are ticking slightly higher despite the largely cautionary mood as ongoing dollar strength and the imminent conclusion of the Fed’s QE programme dents demand for the perceived haven asset. Gold is proving to be another victim of the buck’s recent surge as it slips towards a three-month low.
