European Markets Close Down, Italy Tanks

• Matthew Boesler Business Insider
Italy is leading shares lower, down 1.4 percent.
The losses follow comments by former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi suggesting he may challenge the current Italian government.

Perhaps more important in fueling the drop were polls showing surging support for the rising Five Star opposition movement, led by comedian Beppe Grillo, in regional Italian elections.

France is off 0.7 percent, and Spain is down 0.6 percent on the day.

Germany is the outperformer today, down 0.3 percent.

Elsewhere, Greece is getting crushed, down over 6 percent on delayed bank earnings results.
