In Asia the Nikkei closed down -0.16% and the Hang Seng -0.56% meanwhile the S&P/ASX200 -0.46%. In Europe the most of the attention was on Germany election that saw Angela Merkel coalition to obtain the biggest victory since reunification vote. Markets in Europe are not celebrating this event and the stability offered by Mrs. Merkel is offset by the fact that bailed out nations will probably stay under austerity measures.
