The softer tones continue over to Europe

  • German DAX futures -0.4%
  • French CAC 40 futures -0.1%
  • UK FTSE futures -0.3%
  • Spanish IBEX futures -0.3%

Not much surprises that the weaker risk sentiment is spreading over to European assets as well. It's all about trade talks and how they develop and currently sentiment is that there is simmering optimism that there will be a major breakthrough after reports emerged since overnight trading that US and China are still far apart on structural issues.
