european stock futures down october 1 2012

european stock futures down october 1 2012 : European stock index futures pointed to a lower open on Monday, adding to the previous session's losses on mounting concerns over Spain's economic crisis and as data signalled further evidence of slowing growth in China.

At 0602 GMT, futures for Euro STOXX 50, for Germany's DAX and for France's CAC 40 were down 0.3-0.6 percent.

European (SXXP) stock futures fell as Japan’s largest manufacturers became more pessimistic and China’s manufacturing contracted for a second month, adding to evidence the global economy is faltering. U.S. index futures and Asian shares also slid.

European Aeronautic, Defence & Space Co. and BAE Systems Plc (BA/) may move as their $45 billion merger plan faced opposition from a shareholder of the French maker of passenger jets and weapons. Banco Popular Espanol SA (POP) may be active after a report that its board approved a capital increase. Nokia Oyj (NOK1V) may move after Credit Suisse Group AG downgraded the stock.
