European stocks opened at mixed levels Wednesday as concerns about Spain and Greece intensify, and following a rare earnings miss from Apple. “Overall, risk aversion is set to remain highly elevated,” as no resolution to the euro-zone crisis appears to be coming soon, said Crédit Agricole Corporate & Investment Bank. London’s FTSE 100 fell 0.4% at the open, Germany’s DAX was flat and France’s CAC-40 was 0.2% higher. As far as Spain is concerned, it now seems to be very much a case of when, rather than if, it will require a sovereign bailout, after Catalonia—its most indebted region—said Tuesday that it was considering asking for government aid. It wants to look at the fine print of the conditions attached to central government aid before it puts in a request. More»
