Germany without Jamaica, Europe without stress

Print

The last few weeks, which in Germany have been marked by a tough and ultimately unsuccessful struggle for a new government in the form of a Jamaican alliance, have made no difference to the Euro zone from the investors' point of view. The sentix Euro Break-up Index fell slightly to 7.9% in November and is still trading near its all-time low. This means that investors do not worry about Germany's stability and in fact assume that the "grand coalition" will continue, either explicitly or implicitly through a minority government.

The probability of a break-up of the Eurozone measured by the sentix euro break-up index has slightly increased in October. It rose by 0.4 percentage points to 8.1%. This slight increase is quite surprising in view of the unrest in Spain. The Spanish sub index has even fallen from 0.9% to 0.6%. A little more concern for investors is Austria.

But whether this peaceful state still holds after the election is questionable.

The sentix Euro Break-up In-dex drops to 8.0% (from 8.9%) and the sub-index for Italy also drops from 5.5% to 4.6%!

Stabilized Eurozone

Print

During the silly season, political topics are scarce goods in Euroland. In fact, awareness is completely focused on the stabilization of the Euro. This is an indication for investors that the Eurozone solidarity is increasingly stable. In this environment, the Euroland overall index of the sentix Euro break-up index has hardly changed. Its marginal adjustment in July from 8.6% to 8.9% shall not be interpreted turn around or warning signal, but rather is due to its meanwhile low value. This can also be seen in low values of measured exit risks of individual Eurozone countries.
