European shares decline ahead of Fed, Scotland independence vote
European shares ended lower on Tuesday with markets looking forward to a key Federal Reserve policy meeting this week together with a vote on Scottish independence.
- Stoxx 600 lost 0.31 percent or 1.07 points to 342.84
- Stoxx 50 dropped 0.31% or 9.97 points to 3221.73
The U.S. Federal Reserve is expected to give more clues on the future path of U.S. monetary policy this week, with yields on benchmark Treasuries easing slightly on Tuesday morning after pushing higher in the last few trading sessions.
The Fed`s statement is due on Wednesday with a press conference with Chair Janet Yellen shortly afterwards.
In Scotland, concerns regarding the upcoming vote are likely to curb risk sentiment in the near term. Polls currently show that the referendum is too close to call with both sides continuing to campaign hard.
The upcoming vote - which is held on Thursday with the result expected Friday morning - has led investors to sell shares of Scottish companies, place bearish bets on the British pound and worry about the widespread implications of the potential split-off.
-The British FTSE 100 lost 0.18% or 11.97 points to 6792.24
-The French CAC 40 lost 0.44% or 19.48 points to 4409.15
-Frankfurt’s DAX 30 lost 0.28% or 26.70 points to 9632.93
