After a lackluster day with little in the way of moves from flattish levels indices ticked up post the US open as it continued with its winning ways.  However over the last thirty minutes indices gave back some of those gains to close up small on the day.  Sweden was a hair weaker on the day.  On the sector front Food and Personal Goods slipped with the balance of sectors higher.   Autos and Retails finished better, both up over a percent.

On the Brexit front a press report is noting Spain and Netherlands who both have trade and investment relationships with the UK are said to pushing for a ‘soft’ Brexit.  Their respective fin mins noted they were concerned about losing the UK’s EU budget contribution and incurring tariffs.
