Variable income leaves volatility behind and reaches slight increases

Last week ended with a quiet end to the trading week, the European stock market showed a mild upward trend, ending the day up 0.11% to 3,867 points in the Euro Stoxx 50. Meanwhile, our Ibex 35 domestic index rose another moderate 0.31%, to 8,330 integers. For the week as a whole, the Euro Stoxx 50 corrected 0.9%, in a week in which volatility clearly decreased, with the index moving in a range of less than 100 points. As for sectors, the last trading day of the week was settled with a greater drop in construction, industrial, banks and insurance, while energy, real estate, and raw materials rose to a greater extent. So far this month, it is worth noting the drop of more than 10% in the auto and retail sectors, while the energy and raw materials sectors have risen in the same period by around 8%, and a 4% the health sector. As far as stocks are concerned, the rise in the Euro Stoxx 50 on Friday was supported by Infineon in technology, along with Deutsche Boerse, Total, Bayer or the luxury company Hermes. Instead, falls were seen in Prosus, BNP Paribas, Kone, Essilor or Schneider. Within the selective Spanish Ibex 35, the strong rise of Indra, Naturgy, Arcelor and the real estate companies Merlin Properties and Colonial stood out, compared to corrections in Siemens Gamesa, Pharmamar, Ferrovial, Fluidra and Cie Automotive. On Wall Street, US stock markets remain clearly positive and rose again at the end of the session, in a week with a rise of 1.8%. The S&P 500 finished 0.51% higher at 4,543 points, the Dow Jones up 0.44% and the Nasdaq with a modest correction of 0.16%.
