Canada's benchmark S&P/TSX dropped 31.75 points, or 0.49%, to 6,489.25.

European stocks stumbled after a surprise decision by the Bank of England to reduce its benchmark rate to the lowest level since 1955. London's FTSE index slipped 81.70 points, or 2.22%, to 3,597.00. Paris' CAC-40 index finished down 8.44 points, or 1.68%, to 2,836.18. In Frankfurt, the DAX index fell 76.88 points, or 2.82%, to 2,649.00, after a report showed that German manufacturing fell more than the expected 4.1% in December.
