We started the morning with a major sell-off in Europe driven by financial stocks. And the day didn’t look up after that.European markets have now closed with Germany down 6%, France off 5.48%, Italy off almost 6.4% and London off 4.6%. But this sell-off was sparked by concerns over the liquidity of European banks, amidst the eurozone debt crisis. Let’s take a look at those banks again:

French Banks 

  • Societe Generale — -12.45
