By FXstreet.com | Updated July 30, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Córdoba) - European stocks fell Monday extending losses into a third day, as risk aversion prevails amid mounting geopolitical tensions in Ukraine and Israel.



The Stoxx Europe 600 fell 0.53% to 337.860. Among country-specific indexes, UK FTSE 100 lost 0.37%. Germany's DAX 30 shed 0.97% and France’s CAC 40 dropped 0.61%. Spain’s Ibex 35 lost 0.49%, while Italy’s FTSE MIB fell 1.06%.



With no much ahead in terms of economic data from the Eurozone and the US, markets might continue to get cues from political developments.
