FXStreet (Mumbai) - The major stock markets across Europe opened on a weaker note as investors ignored the technical correction in the oil prices.

The mining-heavy London’s FTSE fell 0.23%. Stock markets suffered sharp losses in the last two trading sessions on account of the sharp fall in commodities. It remains to be seen if the mining stocks across Europe witness technical recovery or extend the drop on prospects of low demand from China. For more information, read our latest forex news.
