European shares fell on Thursday, with investors already on alert
European shares fell on Thursday as concerns over the US debt ceiling impasse and a slowing global economy resurfaced and outweighed initial optimism fueled by positive corporate results, while luxury stocks steadied after a sharp fall .
The pan-European STOXX 600 closed down 0.3 percent, losing about 2.7 percent in three straight days, dragged down by recent losses in luxury shares and a lack of progress on talks to raise the U.S. debt ceiling and avoiding a situation of insolvency.
European shares came under strong selling pressure this week as investors worried about a possible US debt default and strong UK inflation after a solid earnings season sent several regional bourses to record highs records.
