European stocks have slid at the start of trading, extending this week's losses, with London's FTSE 100 index down 0.19 per cent to 6,475.72 points.

Elsewhere on Tuesday, Frankfurt's DAX 30 slipped 0.08 per cent to 9,244.09 points and in Paris the CAC 40 reversed 0.40 per cent to 4,177.20.

The region's three main indices had also fallen on Monday, shedding some of last week's bumper gains as investors took profits and digested weaker-than-expected data, dealers said.
