European ‘Crisis Is Not Over’: Barclays Analyst

Worries over the European economic crisis that sparked a stock market sell-off abroad show no signs of abating anytime soon, Barclays Chief European Economist Philippe Gudin said Wednesday on CNBC.

“I think there are some worries about how Europeans are going to be able to continue to handle this crisis,” he said on “Fast Money.”

Police and protesters clashed this week as the Spanish government was set to announce a new set of austerity measures.

The unrest sent Spanish shares lower, and Gudin said that he saw no relief anytime soon.

“We’ve seen a period of recovery of confidence over the last weeks, which was probably exaggerated,” he said. “This crisis is not over. It’s going to continue for a longer period of time. They have to fix the long-term solutions, which means building some stronger institutions for Europe, and also fixing the situation in different countries.

“This is the end of a period of a more quiet environment, but I’m afraid these crises are going to continue for a while.”
