European stocks down before US data
(07-30 19:00)

Europe's stock markets dipped on Wednesday in cautious deals before crucial US economic data and the outcome of the latest Federal Reserve policy meeting.
Investors also digested news of more Western sanctions on Russia over the Ukraine crisis, with the euro at eight-month lows against the dollar owing to concerns about the impact on the eurozone economy.
In late morning deals, London's benchmark FTSE 100 index fell 0.06 percent to stand at 6,803.66 points, winning some support from Barclays results.
In Paris, the CAC 40 fell back 0.26 percent to 4,354.19 points and Frankfurt's DAX 30 index shed 0.14 percent to 9,640.20.
The European single currency meanwhile slid to $1.3395 -- the lowest level since mid-November. --AFP
