(Best Syndication News) Stock markets are opening higher in Asia Monday as traders anticipate the approval of the Greek bailout package by Euro-Zone Ministers (see stock charts below). As the March 20 deadline approaches to prevent a Greek default, the bailout agreement, along with unpopular austerity measures in Greece, has been the stumbling block.

Traders had hoped for an agreement last week. While the Greek economy has been in shambles this last year, European Union members feared the sovereign-debt contagion could spread through to Portugal, Spain, and even Italy.

(Best Syndication News) Stock markets are opening lower in Europe Thursday after closing mostly lower in Asia earlier in the day (see the stock charts below). Lingering European debt worries continue to haunt investors as European Finance Ministers fail to make headway.

On Wednesday, most markets in Asia and Europe were higher (see the world market chart below). The Shanghai composite index (China) gained nearly one percent while the Nikkei 225 (Japan) and the Hang Seng (Hong Kong) both gained more than two percent.

By the time markets opened in Europe, Greek contagion fears were waning. The FTSE 100 (England) fell slightly, while the CAC 40 (France) and the DAX (Germany) were positive.

Weaker than expected retail sales numbers and a downgrade of European sovereign debt put pressure on stocks today. EU Finance Ministers were expected to meet on Wednesday, but that meeting has been postponed. The postponement also pushed stocks lower.

Moody’s changed the outlook for France and downgraded the sovereign debt of several countries, including Italy, Malta, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

AAPL stock breaks 500

(Best Syndication News) Nearly every stock exchange in the world was higher Monday, however markets are opening mixed in Asia early Tuesday (see the stock charts below).

Late last week investors were worried that Greek lawmakers would not reach an agreement to cut government spending and raise taxes. But over the weekend the Parliament was able to pass an austerity measure.

Although traders realize that the Greek government still needs to wrangle with the public sector to make the cuts, a crisis has been temporarily averted. Traders returned to studying fundamentals, economic indicators, and income statements for their buying decisions.
