  • European shares are extending a malaise linked to earnings and signs that Beijing largesse may soon be curtailed
  • Major indices fail to pick up the baton despite bumper overnight earnings from Microsoft and Facebook


Corporate News

  • The tech slump on this side of the Atlantic can mostly be pegged on Nokia’s disappointing quarter. It’s shares trade 8% lower
  • Contrast that with near-blockbuster earnings from Microsoft and Facebook, reaffirming U.S. tech sector resilience ahead of Amazon and Alphabet reports tonight and Monday
  • Still, a divide is appearing between ‘value’ and ‘growth’ shares, as 3M Co posts a weak outlook similar to Caterpillar’s, on Wednesday. The office equipment group’s shares fall 6%
  • The Nasdaq 100 rises 0.7% whilst the Dow falls 0.8
