European stocks made a muted start to Wednesday’s session as comments from U.S. President Donald Trump reignited fears over trade.
The pan-European Stoxx 600 traded just below the flatline at 388.85 after the opening bell, oil and gas stocks tumbling 1.2% while household goods were the strongest early performers with a 0.5% rise.
Market focus is largely attuned to the U.S.-China trade spat. President Trump on Tuesday said that the U.S. and China still have a “long way to go” on trade, adding that Washington could slap tariffs on an additional $325 billion in Chinese goods “if we want.”
