Global shares subdued as US virus aid hopes fade
TOKYO (AP) — Global stock markets were subdued on Tuesday as hopes faded that the U.S. will come through with badly needed aid for the economy before the presidential election.
U.S. shares appeared set to recover only part of Monday's losses, with Dow and S&P 500 futures both up 0.6%.
In Europe, France's CAC 40 gained 02% to 4,952, while Germany's DAX slipped 0.4% to 12,801.
