Earlier today in the Euro Zone, the Sentix Investor Confidence, which is a monthly survey which shows the market opinion about the current economic situation and the expectations for the next semester was released. The market was expecting a rise from the last reading to 13.2. However, the outcome was above the forecast, as the Sentix Investor Confidence came in at 15.1 in November 2015.
