LIVE MARKETS-Morning call: No euphoria on this side of the pond

Thu, 27th Aug 2020 06:34

Welcome to the home for real-time coverage of European equity markets brought to you by Reuters
stocks reporters. You can share your thoughts with Joice Alves (joice.alves@thomsonreuters.com)

MORNING CALL: NO EUPHORIA ON THIS SIDE OF THE POND (0632 GMT)

There's no clear trend in Europe yet with futures currently pointing to a flat open.

One thing is for sure: last night's euphoria on Wall Street which led to new record highs
and saw Netflix, Facebook and Salesforce.com surging is no where to be found this morning on
this side of the pound.

With the MSCI world equity index trading just short of its new record peak,
Europe's bourses are clearly lagging and have yet to catch the train of this new bull market.

On the bright side, the STOXX 600, still down about 10% year-to-date, is currently set to
make weekly gains of 2%, which would be its best performance since June.
