Flows into Europe tend to do best when economies are recovering fast from troughs, but there seems to be less scope of that, says Goldman Sachs (GS).

Following steep outflows from European equities last year thanks to the war in Ukraine, GS notes this year began with a short-lived shift back into Europe driven by declining energy prices and more optimism on domestic growth, supported by strong and sustained performances from sectors like luxury.

"But since mid-March we've seen outflows again; a contrast to the European bond market where we've seen investors return with more consistency through this year" - GS

GS also flagged concerns like the recent turmoil in the U.S. banking sector raising risk premium for European financials, and a soft batch of economic data out of China, to which Europe has maximum exposure.

Adding to troubles, GS notes markets have become concentrated in mega-cap firms exposed to AI, something Europe has minimal exposure to, further weighing on the continent's ability to attract investors.

For the UK specifically, equity outflows have continued to disappoint whereas bond flows have improved modestly.

Other than being plagued by the same issues as the rest of Europe, the analysts say that they are seeing relatively few IPOs, and that large cap companies continue to buy back shares, further adding to the pressure.

The result is a contraction in net equity supply worth about 2% of mega-cap per annum, bigger than that in the U.S.

After collapsing more than 25% from its January 2022 record close into its October 2022 closing low, the S&P 500 index .SPX has made great progress in retracing its losses.

Indeed, on Thursday, the benchmark index ended at 4,293.93, or 20.04% above that October closing low.

In terms of recouping its losses, the SPX, with its 4,299.28 high this past Monday, has now retraced as much as 61% of the 2022 decline on an intraday basis.

With Thursday's close, the SPX is still down more than 10% from its January 2022 highs, and it is important to note that any market that retraces less than 100% of its prior swing is always considered counter-trend or a correction of the prior swing.

The index is nearing the next significant resistance in the form of the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the entire 2022 decline, at 4,311.69, and the August 2022 reaction high at 4,325.28:

This zone is only around 0.4%-0.7% above Thursday's close, so the index appears to be reaching another critical juncture.

In the event of a reversal, there is a weekly Gann Line now around 4,261, which descends to around 4,256 next week (Gann Lines are trend lines running at certain angles off significant highs and lows).

The next support is in the 4,203-4,155 area, which includes a number of previous highs since late-August of last year, the 100-week moving average, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement of the March 2020-January 2022 advance, the 50% retracement of the January 2022-October 2022 decline, and the upper boundary of the weekly cloud.

Thus, if any weakness is going to prove to be just a modest pause in an ongoing recovery, traders don't want to see the index back below this zone.

In the event there is an explosive upside thrust next week, there will be a powerful weekly Gann Line intersection around 4,445. The 76.4%/78.6% Fibonacci retracements of the entire 2022 decline are in the 4,505-4,535 area.
