Earlier today, we told you about how the US government could possibly initiate antritrust investigations against leading tech companies. This news not only caused major tech companies’ stocks to trade lower on Wall Street yesterday, but are also impacting European shares as the markets open on Tuesday.

European shares were down by 0.5%, with the technology sector driving the move lower. FTSE 100 is expected to reverse its gains from Monday on this news and is currently trading at around 7175.
