    There is no strong catalyst for European banks to go up 1. Flat yield curve and negative interest rates charged by the ECB 2. Too many banks in the region and lack of quality assets on their books 3. Low (No?) economic growth... 4. Geopolitical uncertainty and conflicts among Eurozone members 5. Demographic shifts (Older people don't borrow much and like start businesses/buy homes while young ambitious European people would rather be in UK/US or other DMs) and the list goes on I guess...
