Euro is again the disapointment


Yesterday’s trading day was likely to have been a big disappointment to most investors.

The recovering euro made the price gains melt away. In the end, the German leading index even slipped into the loss zone. The otherwise strong November was weak this year with a minus of 1.5%. Now market participants hope that things will pick up again in December. Statistically, the DAX was able to gain significantly in the last few weeks of the year. In the past, the gain averaged 1.13%. Before the stock exchange, we see the domestic stock market barometer with 13,023 points hardly changed. The euro against the US dollar is currently up about 0.2% to $ 1.1923.
