Thankfully closing before the House Speaker took the mic, Europe closes sharply higher, catching up to and surpassing yesterday's rally in the States. The Stoxx 50 +1.3%, led by Italy +2.8%. The euro flat at $1.2954. A quick check of the Vanguard MSCI Europe ETF (VGK) finds it ahead 13.4% YTD, exactly matching the SPY.
