(ANSA) – MILAN, SEPTEMBER 21 – The stock markets of the Old Continent see the mid-day mark, always recovering strongly after yesterday’s negative day: on the day of the start of the Fed meeting from which signals should come about the start of the reduction in the securities purchase plan, the Frankfurt and Amsterdam stock exchanges rose by 1.4%, followed by Paris (+ 1.3%), London and Milan (Ftse Mib + 1.2%), with Madrid growing around the percentage point. In Europe, purchases are quite widespread in all sectors, with the energy one (sector index + 1.7%) slightly more rewarded than the others also thanks to the attempt to raise the price of oil, which remains solidly above 70 dollars a barrel. In Piazza Affari, Saipem snatches (+ 3.3% to two euros) even after the signing of an agreement with Saudi Aramco for the possible creation of a new company, good for Moncler and Buzzi which grow by two and a half percentage points. Strong also Unipol and Bper (both + 2.3%), with Eni growing by two percentage points. Diasorin, weak at start, is now slightly positive as Tim moves uncertainly, swaying around parity. (HANDLE).
