    H&M leads European shares lower after sales miss, banks stumble

    MILAN/LONDON (Reuters) - European shares fell on Friday, weighed down by weakness in the heavyweight banking sector and a slump in retail stocks following a disappointing trading update from fashion brand H&M. According to EPFR's weekly data, worries over the national election next year in Italy hit European equity funds with outflows at their highest level in over a year. H&M plunged 13 percent, leading losers on the STOXX, after the world's second largest fashion retailer reported an unexpected drop in quarterly sales as fewer shoppers visited its stores.

    Market Snapshot – Markets Subdued on Tax Reform Concerns

    The European stock markets are a bit subdued after an initial move higher yesterday on the back of the ECB press conference. The markets have now got a sudden realisation that the extension of QE and the growth forecasts were actually dovish and hence we are seeing the euro on the backfoot and we are also seeing the stock markets being a bit lower. The delay in the tax reform bill in the US is also weighing on the stock markets in Asia and Europe though the futures in the US point higher during this period.

U.S. stock futures are moving higher though amid a weaker USD. The Eurozone posted a trade surplus of EUR 19.0 billion in October, down from EUR 24.5 billion in the previous month, as exports dropped back to EUR 180.6 billion from EUR 185.0 billion, while nominal imports picked up.
