European Markets:  

EU markets traded lower for the second day in a row, weakness in all major sectors and zero positive sentiment were the reason behind the red day. Energy and Banks were the dominant movers to the down side. The EUSXX600 lost 0.44%. UK retail sales at 9:30 am and FED chairman Yellen speech at noon are the important news on the agenda Thursday.
