European Factors to Watch-Shares to rise after bank checks

lunes 27 de octubre de 2014 02:19 GYT
 

LONDON, Oct 27 (Reuters) - Financial spreadbetters expected Britain's FTSE
100 to open 20 to 23 points higher, or 0.4 percent, Germany's DAX
 to open 30 to 43 points higher, or 0.5 percent, and France's CAC 40
 to open 19 to 23 points higher, or 0.6 percent, on Monday.
    * Investors gave a cautious thumbs-up to the European Central Bank's (ECB)
health check of euro zone banks, describing it as a step in the right direction
rather than the final word on the state of the bloc's financial system.
 
    * Roughly one in five of the euro zone's top lenders failed landmark health
checks at the end of last year but most have since repaired their finances, the
European Central Bank said on Sunday.
