LIVE MARKETS-Morning call: down we go

Thu, 24th Sep 2020 06:39

* European shares seen opening sharply lower
Welcome to the home for real-time coverage of European equity markets brought to you by Reuters
stocks reporters. You can share your thoughts with Joice Alves (joice.alves@thomsonreuters.com)
and Julien Ponthus (julien.ponthus@thomsonreuters.com) in London and Stefano Rebaudo
(stefano.rebaudo@thomsonreuters.com) in Milan.

MORNING CALL: DOWN WE GO (0538 GMT)

We're clearly set for a risk-off session in Europe today with stock index futures pointing
to losses of more than 1%. The magnitude of the falls could well drag the STOXX 600
benchmark down to its lowest level since June.

Wall Street closed sharply lower led by a more than 3% drop in the Nasdaq, while Asia isn't
of any inspiration with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan
last down 1.9% on worries over the resilience of the economic recovery.
