MADRID, June 21 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Ibex 35 ended Tuesday’s session down 0.61%, taking it to a level of 8,235.6 integers, also distancing itself from the uptrend of the rest of the main indices of European equity markets, such as the selective ones Americans in “green” at the end of the day in Spain.
The setback of today’s session is caused in particular by the stock market fall in the energy sector, after the Minister of Finance and Public Administration, María Jesús Montero, assured today that she shares with the second vice-president of the government and Minister for Labor, Yolanda Díaz, the objective that the electrical companies pay larger amounts into the state coffers for their “exorbitant” services, and has spoken out in favor of this surcharge being levied for an entire financial year.
In this context, Naturgy fell by 3.08%, followed by Endesa (-2.90%), Acciona (-2.80%) and Iberdrola (-2.72%). Next, Aena was down 2.63%, while Enagás ended down 2.34% and Acciona Energía down 2.15%.
On the other hand, Fluidra was the bullish value of the day, up 2.76%, followed by Banco Sabadell (+2.46%), Bankinter (+2.24%), PharmaMar (+2.16%), Repsol (+2.07%) and CaixaBank (+1.53%).
The Ibex 35 has thus distanced itself from the increases recorded by the main stock market indices this Tuesday. At close, London’s FTSE 100 was up 0.42%, Paris’ CAC 40 was up 0.75%; the Frankfurt Dax 0.20% and the Milan FTSE Mib 0.39%.
For their part, US indexes traded higher, 1.69% for the Dow Jones, 2.34% for the S&P500 and 2.75% for the Nasdaq.
A barrel of Brent crude oil, a reference in Europe, was sold at 114.52 dollars, up 0.34%, while a barrel of WTI, a reference in the United States, dropped its price by 0.92% to 110, $57 increased.
Finally, the euro was placed mid-session at 1.0547 greenbacks against the dollar, while Spain’s risk premium was at 110 basis points, with the required rate on the 10-year bond at 2.838%.
