European Stocks Open Lower

Stocks in Europe were lower in early trade Monday, as investors analyzed the finer details of the European rescue plan passed last week and as a stronger U.S. dollar, following Japan's intervention to weaken the yen, pressured equities and commodities.

At the time of writing, the FTSE was 0.7% lower in Britain, while France's CAC and Germany's DAX were off 1.5% and 1%, respectively.
