The pan-European Stoxx 600 dropped 1.5 percent in early trade on Thursday, with basic resources tumbling 2.7 percent to lead losses as all sectors and major bourses plunged into negative territory.

Britain’s FTSE 100 index shed almost three percent at the opening bell in London. France’s CAC 40 is down by 2.4 percent, while Germany’s DAX slid 219 points or 2.3 percent.

Asia Pacific markets also stumbled earlier in the day, with Japan’s Nikkei closing down by almost five percent.
