The decrease registered this Friday at the close (-1.47%) has been slightly less than that which has been recorded during the opening, when the selective of the Spanish stock markets and markets fell by 2.4%.

The vast majority of the Ibex 35 values ​​have closed the session in negative. Only Aena, with an increase of 1.28%, and Iberdrola, advancing a slight 0.05%, have gotten rid of the ‘red’.

Unicaja Banco was the seventh company that fell the most today (-2.53%), while CaixaBank was in tenth position (-1.80%).

The correction to the six banks listed on the Ibex has occurred after the problems registered by Silicon Valley Group, parent company of Silicon Valley Bank. The firm’s shares have been suspended from trading after having suffered a 60% collapse, and the entity has entered into negotiations for its sale, according to what the local press has published.

The situation has led the US Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen, to ensure that she is very aware of the situation of some banks, including Silicon Valley Bank.

“Investors continue to weigh the effects of higher-than-expected interest rates, while financial entities in difficulties begin to appear, casting doubt on the liquidity of the banking sector,” said XTB analyst Joaquín Robles.
