European Equities Drop for Third Straight Day

European Equities Drop for Third Straight Day

Katie Pilbeam, Contributor


European stock markets fall for a third straight day with oil prices hovering near their seven-month lows after overnight losses which were caused by worries about a supply glut and falling demand.
