Europe Shares Drop at Close


European stock markets were lower. London's Financial Times-Stock Exchange 100 index was down 14.4 points, or 0.35%, to 4,142.7.

In Paris, the CAC 40 fell 28.05 points, or 0.87%, to 3,188.71. Germany's DAX index lost 1.47 points, or 0.04%, to 3,323.38. Continued weakness in the dollar increased worries about U.S demand for increasingly more expensive exported goods, according to S&P MarketScope.

Asian markets finished lower Monday. In Japan, the Nikkei 225 index lost 88.87 points, or 0.86%, to close at 10,229.57. Ahead of Japan's semi-annual book close on Sep. 30, domestic investors and dealers largely took a wait-and-see stance, but concerns about the strong currency continued to hurt exporters and blue-chips. In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng index fell 148.87 points, or 1.32%, to close at 11,141.28.

Canada's benchmark S&P/TSX added 12.54 points, or 0.17%, to 7,445.62.
