European markets moved lower. In London, the Financial Times-Stock Exchange 100 index ended off 45.10 points, or 0.88%, to 5,074.90, on news that December manufacturing sentiment hit a 3-year low, while November retail sales rose 1.3%, the fastest pace in 13 years. In Germany, the DAX Index dropped 103.33 points, or 2.04%, to 4,959.23. German retail sales suffered its biggest biggest decline in 2 years.
