• German DAX futures -0.7%
  • UK FTSE futures -0.3%

This continues from the softer mood since Friday last week, with S&P 500 futures seen down 21 points, or 0.5%, currently. For Europe, it is a bit of a catch up as regional indices did close higher amid the volatile swings at the end of last week - which also saw US indices pare losses before dropping again late on.
