Weak PMI data drags EU markets down
- 1 month ago
EU indices traded negatively in today’s session as investors digested weak PMI data from France and Germany.

Meanwhile, US-China trade uncertainty and the collapse of British tour operator Thomas Cook also weighed.
The German DAX 30 fell by 1.1% while the French CAC 40 lost 0.8%.
London’s FTSE 100 declined by 0.2% while the Madrid based index, the IBEX 35 slid by 0.8% and the Italian borsa, the FTSE MIB shed 1%.
