Opening gains erased as US futures also fall

  • Eurostoxx -0.2%
  • Germany DAX -0.3%
  • France CAC 40 flat
  • UK FTSE +0.1%
  • Spain IBEX +0.1%

No major headlines are crossing but risk is retreating slightly after a bit of a more optimistic start. Germany's DAX got off to a 0.3% gain at the open but is now down 0.3% as US futures also dip a little in the opening stages in Europe.

S&P 500 futures are now down 0.2% while Nasdaq futures are down 0.3%.

If anything, it reflects some sense of caution ahead of the US CPI release later today.
