New Italian PM alarms the markets

  • The new PM of Italy delivered his first speech in the Italian Senate alarming the markets and passing a confidence vote.
  • Italy’s PM Mr. Conte promised a minimum “citizen’s income”, as well as curbs on immigration and a “radical change”.
  • The speech caused a sell off for Italian bonds causing the EUR to rise.
  • Should the new government go ahead with it’s plans, it may clash with Brussels as the Italian economy remains in a fragile position.
  • After passing the confidence vote in the Lower house today, the new government will be fully empowered.
  • Should there be further negative headlines about Italy and the Eurozone, we could see the common currency weakening as instability rises.

UK’s Labour Party favors single market with EU

  • Media reports stated that UK’s Labour party leader Corbyn, placed an amendment to Theresa May’s Brexit legislation.
  • The amendment would force the UK government to practically pursue in the Brexit negotiations for the UK to remain in the single market with the EU.
  • The amendment is to be voted on, probably next week and will require votes from the conservative party to pass.
  • Should there be any further instability in the UK political scene about Brexit we could see the pound weakening.
