Mark Shore · Trade tensions, tariffs and European volatility

Posted on 2019-04-12

Mark Shore's new article titled "Trade tensions, tariffs and European volatility", written for the Eurex Group, examines European volatility, as measured by the VSTOXX® volatility index since early 2018 in relation to the recent global escalation of trade tensions. These actions may have introduced a new stream of market and economic uncertainty. The article discusses:

1)       How the trade relations of the U.S. and China may be impacting the E.U. and its markets
2)       Unforeseen consequences of trade tensions
3)       Volatility behavior as trade announcements occurred
