The DAX closed 0.39% lower at the close with Rheinmetall AG dragging the index down by 3.32%. The FTSE 100 declined 0.37% as St. James's Place PLC decreased 2.42%. The pan-European Euro Stoxx 50 went down 0.40% with BASF SE declining 3.11%. The CAC 40 lost 0.37% as Thales went down by 2.21%.

The euro was 0.12% lower against the dollar at 5:28 pm CET to sell for $1.09317. The British pound was flat against the greenback at the same time.
