The Ibex fell this Tuesday (-0.24%, 8,846 points), but closed August with increases of 1.96% in the accumulated monthly. The selective has been weighed down by the cuts from Fluidra and ArcelorMittal, the worst in the index, in addition to Cellnex and IAG, which have yielded 2.2 and 1.9%, respectively. In the case of the last two, it is said that the 'teleco' will be on the verge of entering the EuroStoxx 50 in the September review (Yes, BBVA would enter), while IAG falls back in the face of the new travel restrictions announced by the European Union. Other stocks, such as Telefónica, Siemens Gamesa or Repsol, also fell significantly, while Indra and Almirall were the values that increased the most.
August has been a month in which the stock markets have experienced the odd scare as the data of infections by Covid were increasing in the world and different countries reimposed restrictions. The fear that this will stunt the recovery has led some firms to like Goldman Sachs herself, to cut US growth estimates for this year. Others, such as Oxford Economics, have announced that they will do the same with their estimates for China.
Despite everything, world stock markets have advanced positions in the summer month par excellence as Wall Street indices hit all-time highs -especially the Nasdaq- day after day, something that It has also been seen this Monday. Now, investors face a September full of references, with meetings of central banks and important macro data, not forgetting the elections in Germany.
