European shares slipped on Tuesday as cyclical stocks fell, while dwindling enthusiasm over a U.S. tax bill weighed on financial service providers. The pan-European STOXX 600 index, fresh from its best day in six weeks, fell 0.2 percent, as weak financials and healthcare shares outweighed a rally in consumer staples and utilities, while tech stocks rebounded, tracking U.S. peers. "It's been noticeable there has been a distinct sector rotation over the last week which is impacting the momentum of the market," wrote Deutsche Bank strategist Jim Reid in a note.
Britain's main share index gave up early gains on Tuesday to close slightly lower, as sterling picked itself up from a session low on the back of timid optimism about a Brexit deal. The blue chip FTSE 100 index ended the session 0.2 percent lower at 7,327.50 points, joining the pan-European STOXX index in negative territory. While a weaker pound initially supported the index, the currency later cut losses to trade just slightly lower, which put pressure on Britain's blue chips.
Provident said on Tuesday the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) had launched an investigation into Moneybarn, its car and van financing arm, focusing on how it assesses whether customers can afford to take on credit and how it deals with borrowers who cannot repay loans.
