I want to invest in European stocks and any kind of fund. What do you recommend?
I have done well with a few European wind energy companies. Vestas, VWSYF.pk, and Gamesa, GCTAF.pk. These are available through the pink sheets. These are the world's top 2 suppliers of wind turbines. There businesses are growing, and demand will be strong for a while.

was it real that European Stocks Retreat for Third Week, Entering Bear Market as Banks Fall?
yes it was real that European Stocks Retreat for Third Week, Entering Bear Market as Banks Fall, here's the report :
For Asian market, it grown extremely fast for the past six month. It's time for the market to fix up and reconstruct the stock price. Therefore, the US problem can be a good excuse for the broker to sell the stock and reconstruct their profolio.
Not only Asia, but also all around the world. I think this kind of drop is healthy
Question about European stocks bought with the american dollar.?
A stock is the equivalent of a part ownership in the company, and has therefore intrinsic value, independent of the currency it's quoted in.
That said, if the American economy becomes so bad that the dollar is worthless, then surely the Unilever company will suffer also.
Actually, that *is* what is happening just now...
