European Stocks Rise For 8th Day In A Row (Best Run In Over 4 Years)

For the first time since July 2009, the European equity markets have risen for 8 days straight. The 4.73% rise is the best run in 3 months and took Bloomberg’s European 500 index (akin to the S&P 500 in the US) to a perfect 61.8% retracement of the 2007/9 collapse. Greece and Spain are outperforming (the former +7% in the last 3 days alone). Away fdrom stocks, bonds are quiet, sovereign spreads are hardly moving as liquidity evaporates and while the EUR strengthened early on, as the US day session opened, the EUR sold off back to unchanged by the close of Europe. In the meantime, Europe’s VIX dropped to 9 month lows (below 16%) today. Oh – and by the way – European Macro data has collapsed to 3-month lows.

European stocks have retraced 61.8% of their 2007-9 losses…


and this makes perfect sense…
