The market continues to function normally, but investors were able to get scared this morning when they found that they were not being able to see the real-time price of the Ibex 35. The incident is due to “technical problems”, according to Bolsas y Mercados Españoles (BME). ), but It has not affected the price or the operation at any time. In fact, its real-time quote has been available at all times on the websites of the brokers used to trade.
The Ibex 35 has stopped this morning after 11 a.m. only in regard to the transmission of the data to the platforms that disseminate them, such as Bloomberg, Reuters and anyone who echoes the different platforms, as explained by BME. Google itself does not reflect the data either.
At the moment in which the information service has been resumed, the Ibex 35 rises 0.8%, above 9,400 points. Above all, the weight of the banks that today reflect the words pronounced over the weekend at the central bankers’ summit in Jackson Hole is noticeable. The main conclusions of the symposium do not surprise investors, without a doubt, since the president of the Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell, once again defended a new rise in interest rates in the United States, to levels above 5.5%, taking into account account that inflation is still not under control.
In the session this week, the most bullish values in the Spanish index are Banco Sabadell, with gains of 2%, and BBVA, which adds another 1.8%. Also noteworthy are the increases in IAG and Acerinox with an increase of 1.5%, while at the bottom of the table are energy firms such as Endesa, Naturgy, Enagás and Iberdrola, with profits that are close to, at most, 0.4%
