European equities off to a rough start on the week

The risk-off mood stays the course to start the European morning

  • Eurostoxx -2.4%
  • Germany DAX -4.7%
  • France CAC 40 -3.2%
  • UK FTSE -2.0%
  • Spain IBEX -3.5%


The sour mood here carries over from Asian trading as we saw Chinese indices close by over 3% lower with the Hang Seng posting losses of nearly 5% today.

US futures also hit limit-down very early on and are down by just over 4% on the session.
