European Markets:    

European markets traded sharply lower for the first time in more than two months as profit taking hit all sectors other than banking stocks. The Retail sector was weak across the board as Adidas and Burberry plummeted on disappointing earnings. The basic resources sector was also down 2.5% and industrial stocks were lower after a 3% move lower in Siemens. The DAX closed lower more than 250 points for the first time in five months.
