Commodities slide, European stocks trim gains

October 19, 2015

Commodity prices extended the drop, while European stocks trimmed gains as we head into the US session. The pan-European Euro Stoxx 600 index now trades just 0.1% higher on the day around 363.55 levels. At point of time, the index was up more than 0.5% at 366.08 levels. 

Meanwhile, Comex copper extended losses to trade 1.71% lower at USD 2.363/pound. Brent and WTI also extended the drop to trade 1.7% and 2% lower on the day.
