According to Friday's trading data, Europe's main stock indexes are declining after the release of data on the first monthly trade deficit in the eurozone in almost eight years. A similar indicator in the UK, which is now not part of the euro area, is fixed at almost zero. 

The German DAX index declined during the day to 15,833.73 points, the French CAC 40 – to 7,119.01 points, the British FTSE 100 – to 7,523.02 points.

European macro statistics exerted pressure on the stock market. Thus, the deficit of the foreign trade balance of the eurozone countries in November amounted to 1.5 billion euros after a surplus of 3.6 billion in October. At the same time, analysts expected a surplus of 7.6 billion euros. The European statistical Agency Eurostat also noted that the trade deficit was recorded for the first time in a month since January 2014.

It is also worth noting that the stock markets of Europe repeat the dynamics of the American and Asian ones, which closed mainly in the red (due to news about the deterioration of the epidemiological situation in these countries).
