Europe slumps by the close amid heightened trade tensions; tech sector drops 3%
European stocks finished Wednesday’s session deep in the red, as renewed concerns over international trade conflicts hampered investors’ appetite for riskier assets.

Bourses across the region were seeing red by the closing bell, with the U.K.’s FTSE 100 slipping 1 percent, France’s CAC 40 dropping 1.54 percent and Germany’s DAX tumbling 1.39 percent.
