The pan-European Euro Stoxx 50 futures are down 1.5%. Germany’s DAX and France’s CAC futures are down 1.3% each. Meanwhile, UK’s FTSE futures are trading 1% each. The Chinese equity markets tumbled again with the benchmark index Shanghai Composite closing at its lowest since December; down 3.5%. It remains to be seen if the European investors follow their Asian counterparts or take indices higher, tracking the rise in the US equities higher yesterday.
