Economy

European stock markets started the week on the back foot as share prices were being adjusted to the sell-off in the US stock market on Friday evening. Of course, the downgrading of Finland and putting France on negative watch by Standard and Poor did not help to lift the gloom. What did, however, was a better-than-expected Chinese trade data that showed the country’s exports rose 15.4% in September year-on-year. As a result the Shanghai Composite Index recovered from the day’s low, the Spanish stock market is 0.66% on the day at the time of writing and the FTSE-100 index is trading 0.13% above Friday’s settlement level.
