Global Macro Scoreboard

Global Macro Scoreboard: March 4, 2018

With Italy's anti-establishment parties surging in polls ahead of today's election, global internet users paid increased attention to the country's still recuperating financial system -- perhaps reflecting concern that a eurosceptic government could imperil EU-led bank bailouts.


The score on the left denotes the percentage share an issue captured of the weekly total upswing in digital attention across all major macro issues. For example, Italian banks accounted for 13 percent of the total increase in online attention to market-moving macro issues over the course of the week.
