European Markets    

European markets traded sharply lower on Friday, closing the worst week of the year down an average 2.5% – making it the worst week for 2017. The geopolitical N. Korea tension, weak earnings and zero positive triggers sent all markets lower. All major sectors led by OIL and gas and Basic resources closed in the red, the Basic resources sector was down 2.7% on the day. The EU markets now trade at 5 month lows, well below the French Election gap in April.
