The Italian Market Is Still Not Trading, And Everyone's Desperate To Sell Libya-Related Stocks

An update to a story we hit this morning: The Italian market still isn’t trading, and according to FT there’s growing anger in Italy and London because everyone wants to dump their Libyan-related stocks.

The ties between the two countries are deep, and Libya’s central bank and its sovereign wealth fund own 7.2% of UniCredit, the big Italian bank.

Responding to these concerns, UniCredit fell 5% in Monday trading. Bear in mind that during the worst periods of the euro crisis, UniCredit was slammed hard like other peripheral banks.
