European Shares Edge Lower On Stimulus Uncertainty

(RTTNews) - European stocks were moving lower on Thursday as stimulus talks sputtered in Washington and investors awaited the latest weekly U.S. jobless claims numbers for clues to economic recovery.

There's an atmosphere of uncertainty swirling around Congress as negotiations for the next stimulus package have stalled.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Democrats and the Trump administration are "miles apart" on a new fiscal plan, with little prospect of any new negotiations bearing fruit in the near future.

The pan-European Stoxx Europe 600 index dropped 0.25 percent to 373.95, snapping a four-day winning streak.

The German DAX and France's CAC 40 index slid around 0.1 percent, while the U.K.'s FTSE 100 was down 0.9 percent.
