As such, in Europe, the British FTSE 100 fell 0.4 percent down to 6,337.91 points, the German DAX 30 slumped 0.5 percent down to 8,541.69 points, and the French CAC 40 dropped 0.2 percent down to 4,127.05 points.

On the global Forex market, the dollar has gone up against the euro on the news that President Barack Obama nominated Janet Yellen for the new head of the Federal Reserve. If the situation with the US budget gets resolved and the government resumes its work, the EUR/USD pair has every chance of picking up its downward move to 1.33.
