European equities pick up the baton and continue the softer sentiment

  • German DAX futures -0.4%
  • French CAC 40 futures -0.5%
  • UK FTSE futures -0.4%

It's very much a continuation of the softer sentiment we're seeing towards the end of Asian trading as US equity futures also fall to their lows in the past twenty minutes. The softer risk sentiment is weighing on risk currencies and is helping to keep the yen underpinned as we begin the session.
