European shares looked set to follow suit, with FTSE futures off 0.65% and pan-region Euro Stoxx 50 futures down 0.8%, in early trading ahead of a closely watched announcement from a meeting of the European Central Bank. Analysts anticipate the ECB will announce a token step towards reducing its emergency economic support.
