US index futures indicated further losses for stocks listed in New York on Monday, following Friday's sharp sell-off and falling equity markets across Europe and Asia.
By late morning trade in London, Dow index futures were down 0.53%, while the S&P 500 futures fell 0.27% and Nasdaq futures lost 0.03%.
While US futures markets indicated opening losses, it appeared the sell-off was unlikely to be as severe as that seen in US markets on Friday, when the Dow lost 2.54%, the S&P 500 shed 2.12% and the Nasdaq slid 1.96%.
Europe and Asia
In Europe, the EuroStoxx 50 index was down 0.95%, while in Asia, Tokyo's Nikkei 225 lost 2.55%.
