European Stocks Slip as Trump Immigration Order Rattles Markets

European stocks fell on Monday, losing ground for the second session a row, as investors showed concern about the impact of Donald Trump’s order to halt some immigration, which sent the U.S. dollar lower and was criticized by companies including Alphabet Inc.’s Google.

The Stoxx Europe 600 Index was down 0.6 percent at 8:30 a.m. in London, led lower by shares in banks and resource-related companies. The benchmark index fell 0.3 percent on Friday as banking stocks retreated following sharp gains made since the start of the year.

Trump’s executive order halting immigration from seven predominantly Muslim nations drew criticism from world governments and some of the largest companies, bringing the geopolitical and international trade risks surrounding the new U.S. president into sharper focus.
