The 2.20% drop in Inditex, coupled with the poor performance of other "heavyweights" of the Spanish selective as Telefonica, which has yielded 1.42%, BBVA, 1.31% or Santander, 0.99%, contributed to the losses of the Ibex in the session.

IAG, the result of the merger of Iberia and British Airways, leads the losses of the Ibex with a fall of 3.65% and the news on a supposed refusal of Norwegian to its offer of purchase; then Inmobiliaria Colonial and ArcelorMittal, which yield 2.60 and 2.48%.

With the euro at $ 1,140 for political instability across the Atlantic, Paris has lost 1.45% and London, 0.52%.
The pulse that the president of the United States, Donald Trump, is sending to Congress to get financing for the wall with Mexico has been settled with the closure of the Administration at least until next January 3, what scares the market, explain from the IG broker.
And not just the market, as US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has revealed in his Twitter account that I had been in touch this weekend with the top executives of the six largest banks in the United States with the intention of containing losses in the stock market.
Neither does it help to appease the spirits the information that tells that Trump could be seriously considering the possibility of replacing the president of the Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell, who raised interest rates last week, although the head of the Treasury has also been responsible for denying it.
