European exchanges fell by almost 2%

Today, on Thursday, the major European indices are declining markedly after the US stock market, fearing further growth in US government bond yields and negative IMF forecasts, according to trading data and analysts' comments.
As of 13.41 Moscow time, the British FTSE 100 index fell by 1.87%, to 7010.04 points, the French CAC 40 - by 1.83%, to 5110.85 points, the German DAX - by 1.6%, to 11525, 19 points.
Due to the increase in the yield of 10-year US government bonds, major stock indexes on Wednesday lost from 3 to 4%. After the release of strong statistics from the US at the end of last week, the yield on ten-year bonds began to grow and on Tuesday rose to a maximum of 2011 by 3.26%, and by the end of trading on Wednesday, it fell to 3.167%. The dynamics of yield on government bonds and the stock market, as a rule, are inversely proportional, since high-yield government bonds can guarantee investors a return with less risk and greater stability compared to stocks.
