by Marzio Quaglino 14 August 2020 After a declining start, European stock exchanges have decidedly embarked on the downward path. The data on the gross domestic product of the Eurozone in the second quarter and the decrease in employment weigh heavily. Milan drops 1.46% and does better than London (-1.81%) and Paris (-1.78%), while Frankfurt limits the decline to 1.07%.

The rise of Banco Bpm in recent days stops on the Piazza Affari list (-3.10%).

The decline in oil is confirmed on the commodity market. Brent from the North Sea returns below the threshold of 45 dollars a barrel to 44.75.

Among the currencies, the Euro is confirmed against the Dollar just above the 1.18 threshold.
