Stocks Europe Slide, Bonds and Yen Gain as Risks Pile Up

Shares in Europe followed Asian counterparts lower as investors eyed risks from Turkey to North Korea. Treasuries advanced with the dollar, while oil dropped with most commodities.

U.S. equity-index futures also declined as optimism over U.S.-China trade talks faded together with prospects for President Donald Trump’s historic summit with North Korea’s leader. Concerns over Turkey’s financial-market stability drove the lira to successive record lows and weighed on emerging-market currencies. The yen rose as traders sought a haven, while equity benchmarks from Hong Kong to Sydney declined.

The Stoxx Europe 600 Index declined 0.3 percent at 395.91 as of 8:07 a.m. London time.

Italian Stocks Lead Europe Lower as Politics Spook Traders

European stocks on Friday retreated from an almost-four month high as uncertainty about Italian politics contributed to a downdraft in a market already jittery over trade tensions between global superpowers China and the U.S.

The Stoxx Europe 600 index closed 0.3% lower at 394.67, breaking a three-day winning run. On Thursday, the pan-European benchmark ended at its highest level since Jan. 30, buoyed by a rally for oil-related companies.

For the week, the Stoxx 600 scored a 0.6% gain.

Italy’s FTSE MIB Index slumped 1.5% to 23,449.65, as political developments in the country flustered markets. The index declined by 2.9% on the week, its largest weekly percentage decline since early March during the general election.
