European stocks drop, US index futures dragged lower

FXStreet (Mumbai) - The European stocks retreated after having failed to sustain gains seen in the early session as concerns regarding the global growth slowdown dominate the market sentiment.

At the time of writing, the pan-European Euro Stoxx 600 index was down 1% to trade around 343.23 levels. Among regional indices, German DAX was down 200 points and France’s CAC was down 60 points.
