MADRID, 10 Jul. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Ibex 35 has closed this Monday with a slight rise of 0.04%, reaching 9,252.9 points, which has allowed it to cut a streak of four consecutive negative closings on a day empty of macroeconomic references.
The main indicator of the Spanish stock market opened with losses that made it lose the level of 9,200 points, but it rose throughout the morning until it stabilized at the closing levels of last Friday and it barely moved away from them.
Investor confidence (Sentix) in the eurozone in July was hardly known during the day, which has worsened more than the market predicted and remains in negative territory, while markets await the arrival of inflation data this week in June from the United States and the main European economies.
The rest of the European indices have managed to register better advances than Madrid encouraged by the pull of Wall Street (its main indicator, the Dow Jones, rose 0.4% at closing time in Europe) in the last tranche of trading: London has added 0.23%; Milan 0.34% and Frankfurt and Paris 0.45% each.
Within the Ibex 35, the biggest increases have been recorded by Meliá Hotels (4.38%), Acerinox (2.43%) and IAG (1.38%), while on the opposite side the most pronounced decreases have been registered Acciona (-2.86%), Enagás (-1.66%), Naturgy (-1.62%), Acciona Energy (-1.43%) and Rovi Laboratories (-1.27%).
At closing time in the Old Continent, the price of a barrel of Brent oil, a reference for the Old Continent, fell 0.06%, to $78.42, while Texas stood at $73.75, 0.11% less.
In the currency market, the price of the euro against the dollar stood at 1.0991 'green bills', while the interest on the long-term Spanish bond closed at 3.681%, with the risk premium (the differential with the German bond) at 104.8 points.
