European banks: one box ticked

The ECB stress tests show a banking system that is pretty healthy overall. All that's required now is for eurozone businesses to believe that.

It’s not all that surprising that the asset quality review and stress tests of Europe’s banks showed that most of them passed. The purpose of a stress test is to reduce, not raise, stress.

No banks will have to close, although there may be a bit of consolidation in Italy, and on the whole everything is hunky dory. Move along, nothing to see here.
