Johannesburg - The JSE struggled to find clear direction at the opening on Wednesday‚ with escalating eurozone concerns weighing on market sentiment.

“The overriding theme is still Europe‚ although we also had disappointing second-quarter results from Apple‚ which added to the negative undertone‚” said Ryan Wibberley‚ an equities dealer at Investec Asset Management.

Market participants are still anxious that Spain might need a full sovereign bail-out after one of its regions asked for financial help last Friday. Meanwhile‚ there are also reports that Greece is likely to miss its debt reduction target.

At 9:43‚ the All Share [JSE:J203] index was up 0.11% to 34‚037.30.
