European equities softer to start the trading day

The risk mood is a bit more defensive to start the European morning
– Eurostoxx -0.3%
– Germany DAX -0.3%
– France CAC 40 -0.6%
– UK FTSE -0.1%
UK stocks are the only ones faring slightly better but that is only because the pound slumped in overnight trading amid the Brexit limbo.
