TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
A run of 6 consecutive days in the green came to an end for the DAX30 and EuroStoxx600 on Tuesday.
The DAX30 and EuroStoxx600 fell by 0.02% and 0.16% respectively, while the CAC40 managed to eke out a 0.17% gain.
A lack of economic data from the Eurozone left the markets to focus on corporate earnings and geopolitical risk on the day.
On the corporate earnings front, a mixed bag on the day left the majors relatively flat ahead of the FOMC interest rate decision later today.
Geopolitics also tested the majors on the day, with the UK seemingly on the way to a December general election that brings plenty of uncertainty. On the trade front, news of the U.S looking into whether to further delay the rollout of tariffs on more Chinese goods was also a test.
