Greek sovereign debt concerns remain but solid gains have been achieved by the Dow Jones Industrial index and Japan’s Nikkei index since the introduction of similar quantitative easing into their domestic economies. Investors will be closely scrutinizing upcoming economic statistics to ascertain whether Europe can replicate an increase in asset prices seen elsewhere.
