Global markets 

European shares slipped on Tuesday as simmering political tensions between the United States and China escalated, while concerns over a deadlock on further US fiscal stimulus drove the dollar towards a two-year low against its rivals.

US stock futures were down 0.2 per cent, pointing to a weaker start on Wall Street and inching back slightly after tech stocks had pushed sister index the Nasdaq to a record high on Monday.

In commodities, oil prices steadied, hanging on to gains from the previous session thanks to high compliance with production cuts from members of the OPEC+ producer group.
