European Markets Lower as Investors Await Tapering Timeline

Asian markets were mixed on Tuesday, as investors awaited key U.S. consumer inflation data for August. Pacing the laggards was China’s Shanghai Composite, which fell 1.4%, followed by Hong Kong’s Hang Seng 1.2% loss, after Chinese real estate mogul Evergrande Group’s stock plummeted on a grim sales outlook. Elsewhere, South Korea’s Kospi and Japan’s Nikkei both added 0.7%.

European markets are lower, meanwhile, with the timeline of the Federal Reserve’s tapering of monetary stimulus potentially hanging in the balance. However, the European Central Bank said it will act swiftly if inflation continues to run hot. Also weighing on investor sentiment are the latest Brexit developments, with Britain threatening to suspend the Northern Ireland protocol. At last check, France’s CAC 40 has shaved off 0.7%, London’s FTSE 100 is down 0.5%, and the German DAX is 0.2% lower.
