The Big Picture:
The DAX on Monday retraced initial weakness, ending above the important resistance level of 10500. Chancellor Merkel toured Europe in the last week, meeting with her Estonian, Czech, Polish, Hungarian and Slovakian counterparts. It became apparent, that Angela Merkel is in a very isolated position, regarding her policy towards refugees. Eastern European officials see policy on migration as a national question. There were no signs that these countries will follow Mrs. Merkel´s policy on refugees. The EU is experiencing its largest crisis in its history since the Brexit-Vote. There is no country nor Politician who would be able to carry over Mrs. Merkels lead role, yet Mrs. Merkel has isolated herself in Europe. It will be interesting to see if Eastern European States unconditionally follow her in important decisions, such as the Brexit negotiations with Britain. Collaboration amongst European states is weaker than ever and that in difficult times
