* “The market is starting to come to terms with the idea that this could be a new world where the discount rate on risky assets is no longer zero,” he said. “You’re seeing all these different areas of the market hit at the same time and it’s been very unsettling for investors.”

* Pan-European index gained 0.73%; MSCI’s measure of global shares fell 0.45%, marking its seventh consecutive weekly decline, its longest losing streak since its inception in 1990; and the main Wall Street indices fell around 2%.
