European equities rebound

On Monday, worries over China’s decelerating economy affected American equities and kept world shares under pressure, although EU equities rallied due to upbeat earnings reports and also a relief that Italy managed to dodge a ratings downgrade.

However, the common currency slumped to a session minimum after a senior party source told that German Chancellor Angela Merkel wouldn’t consider re-election as party chief after big losses for her Christian Democrats in Hesse.

The DAX rallied by 0.7% in Germany, while the major index of euro zone stocks STOXX50E surged by 0.5%, underpinned by a weaker common currency.

The FTSE MIB led the market demonstrating a 1.5% leap after Italian bond gains dived abruptly to a one-week minimum after Standard & Poor's decision not to change Italy's sovereign rating, thus making relief. It also backed Italian bank equities FTIT8300, letting them soar by 2.7%.

The MSCI world equity index MIWD00000PUS, which tracks equities in 47 countries, added 0.1%. This month has slumped by 9.3%. Since its January maximum it has lost up to $6.7 trillion in market capitalization.

In Asia, overnight losses were mostly led by China’s blue-chip index that dived more than 3.3%.

China’s data underscored fears of a decelerating economy as revenue surge at its industrial companies speeded down for the fifth month in a row in September because of diving sales of raw materials as well as manufactured products.

S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial futures went down by respectively 0.2% to 0.3% after the data, reversing a 0,4% profit recorded earlier.

Global financial markets have been affected by an array of dismal factors from an escalating China-American trade clash to tensions in the EU over Italy's budget as well as tightening monetary policy.

The USD index surged by 0.2% hitting 96.553 having soared by 0.7% the previous week.
