Why the underperformance of the German DAX over the past weeks? The German economy isn't immune from the problems surrounding it, and short bans elsewhere in Europe may have made the DAX a target for selling.  The index now sells at a 10 PE and 4.1% dividend yield vs. the S&P at 13 and 2.7%. EWG -17.3% in a month.
