European stocks down before rate calls
(08-07 15:41)

Europe's main stock markets stumbled at the opening of trading on Thursday, as investors awaited decisions on interest rates from the ECB and Bank of England.
London's benchmark FTSE 100 index fell 0.15 percent to stand at 6,626.24 points compared with Wednesday's close.
Frankfurt's DAX 30 dropped 0.53 percent to 9,081.29 points and in Paris the CAC 40 index managed a gain of 0.06 percent to 4,209.61, steadying after falls the previous day.
The European Central Bank (ECB) is widely considered unlikely to unveil any new policy moves at its monthly meeting on Thursday, despite a persistent threat of eurozone deflation and geopolitical risks, analysts said. --AFP
