Investing in the EUSTX50: What to Consider

One of the major advantages of trading an index is that it allows investors to track macro market movement for the entire EU or EEA, rather than the stock of a single company. Information pertinent for the entire continent is far more likely to be available to the general public, rather than specific data for a single company that may not warrant media attention. Therefore, some investors argue that indices are great for beginners who are just starting their trading career.

A relatively new index, the EURO STOXX 50, or EUSTX50 index, is a European index that represents the top 50 largest and most liquid companies in the Eurozone. It includes many well-known names such as Deutsche Telekom, Phillips, Volkswagen Group and L’Oréal.

The index is one of the youngest available on the global markets, and was founded in 1998. The EUSTX50 index was created and operated by STOXX, an index operator owned by a marketplace organiser called Deutsche Börse AG, based in Frankfurt.

As a side note, it is important not to confuse the EURO STOXX 50 with the STOXX Europe 50, with the latter not limited to Eurozone companies.

WHO SHOULD INCLUDE THE EUSTX50 IN THEIR PORTFOLIO?

  1. Index traders: Anyone looking to invest in indices should consider the EUSTX50. It is a strong starting point for new traders and recommended for more advanced traders as well.

  1. Day traders: Indices are a prime target for day traders, and the EUSTX50 index is no exception to this rule. It is especially beneficial for traders who are located in or near a European time zone, as they will be more active during European market hours and be in prime position to take advantage of possible profit opportunities.

  1. European investors: Investors interested in opportunities in Europe will find the EUSTX50 to be very beneficial. It allows anyone to be involved in the European economy, without the regulations and bureaucracy that come with ownership of European stocks.

  1. Diversification seekers: Traders looking to expand into the European markets, or for those who feel that indices are a bit light in their portfolio, should consider this index.

WHAT DRIVES THE EUSTX50 VALUE?

  1. Politics: The European Union is influenced by the politics of both its centralised institutions and the actions of its member states. Consequently, the EUSTX50 can fluctuate in value from a wide variety of reasons. The reality for traders is that despite having more information to track, there is no shortage of available data, as the European Union is constantly in the news throughout the day.

  1. Brexit: A referendum that occurred back in 2016 in the United Kingdom, Brexit stands for ‘British Exit’. The UK is scheduled to leave the EU in the future, but its influence on the EU economy was felt even prior to the referendum results. Financial analysts predict that the repercussions will be felt for many years to come.

EUSTX50 INDEX: A CONTINENT ON THE BRINK

Many intellectuals, political pundits and everyone else who has an opinion they would like to share, feel that this is a make-or-break time in Europe. Many unanswered questions remain regarding economics, political unrest and major questions about what Europe is now and what it will be in the future. With the rise in power of many far left and far right parties in Italy, Greece, Finland, Sweden and elsewhere, it does not appear that all Europeans are on the same page when it comes to the European project.

But it is important to consider that not all is doom and gloom in the European Union. The economy has begun a recovery in some countries, GDP is slowly starting to rise again, and the debt of some member states is now under control. But this doesn’t mean that the EU is out of the fire. There remains plenty of work to be done if they want to return to the prosperous times prior to 2008.

CONCLUSION: WE NEED EUROPE

Europe has and remains a place filled with opportunity for all investors. Regardless of what happens, there is potential profit to be made. While the world is filled with emerging markets that have experienced a sharp rise in GDP over the last several years, Europe remains a focal point in the world economy. As a collective, it is the largest economic bloc in the world. Critics argue that the golden age of the continent has long since passed, but Europe is still the financial and cultural capital of the world. It should not be ignored.
