Surprise! The U.S. has stolen the spotlight from Europe today, and markets have proceeded to tank across the world.All U.S. markets are off almost 2 per cent:
S&P 500: -1.9%
If you’re not miserable already, then take a look at the European scoreboard at the markets close:
FTSE 100: -1.3%
CAC 40: -2.0%
FTSE MIB: -1.2%
IBEX 35: -0.1%
The big deal here is that European worries appear to be seeping into the Core, hitting a Germany that has long resisted market pressures as the European safe haven.
