European equities fall as the DJIA weakens

FXStreet (Mumbai) - The weakness in the US Equity markets has pulled down the European equity markets, which were trading about a half a percent up ahead of the US Open.

The DJIA is trading 0.16% lower at 16517.50, down from a high of 16595.50, while the S&P futures are trading flat at 1895.15, down from a high of 1905. Consequently , the Dax has erased gains to trade just 0.18% up at 8810 levels. Meanwhile, the FTSE is trading 0.44% up at 6367.90.

The Equity markets in the US are swinging from gains to losses as the markets lack a fundamental trigger today. The US treasury markets are closed, hence no fresh cues are coming-in from the treasury yields. Consequently, the US Dollar Index and the Gold prices are trading lackluster.
