European stock markets opening with a softer tone as we kick off the day

  • Eurostoxx -0.1%
  • DAX -0.2%
  • FTSE -0.2%
  • CAC 40 -0.3%
  • FTSE MIB -0.3%
  • IBEX -1.6%

Spain's IBEX index is being hit the hardest here, following the Catalonia elections where separatists won the seating majority.

Other than that, quite the opposite tune of Asian stocks in general. Still early days, let's see if we'll have a repeat of yesterday (soft opening, stronger close).
