Eurostoxx futures -1.0% in early European trading
The softer tones carry over to Europe in early trades
- German DAX futures -1.1%
- UK FTSE futures -1.1%
- Spanish IBEX futures -1.0%
This mirrors the sour mood seen in US futures and Asian equities, amid geopolitical tensions involving Hong Kong and China - as well as the US.
US futures are now down by 0.7% and the overall mood is keeping the dollar and yen underpinned as we begin European morning trade.
Also, just be reminded that it will be a long weekend in the UK (and US) so some repositioning trades in risk and the dollar may be a factor today.
