    MORNING CALL: TARIFF JITTERS TO SPREAD TO EUROPEAN SHARES (0624 GMT)
    Good morning and welcome to Live Markets. 
    European stocks are called to decline further today as the latest protectionist policy push
creates more uncertainty and pessimism over world trade.
    Asian shares reversed overnight as investors digested the threat of new U.S. tariffs on
Chinese imports and President Trump's move to fire his Secretary of State, which had already
sent Europe and Wall Street skidding.
    Trump is seeking to impose tariffs on up to $60 billion of Chinese imports, targeting the
technology and telecoms sectors in particular. 
    Spreadbetters call the DAX 79 points lower at 12,143, the CAC 40 down 27 points at 5,215,
and the FTSE 100 27 points lower at 7,112.
