European markets hit record highs after weekend news, including Larry Summersâ??s withdrawal from Fed chair candidacy and a diplomatic agreement brokered in Syria. “The market has moved on two reasons. There’s a relief rally on the latest Syrian news, but also Yellen is seen to be more dovish and pro-quantitative easing… Consequently it’s good for the equity markets,” said James Butterfill, global equity strategist at Coutts. The FTSEurofirst 300 hit both an intraday high at 1262.25 and a close of 1258.42, both of which are the highest levels seen in five years.
