    PARIS, June 25 (Reuters) - The main European stock exchanges are
expected down on Tuesday at the opening, in the wake of Asian markets,
concerns about US-China trade limiting
initiatives just days away from the G20.
    According to the futures, the Paris CAC 40 .FCHI could lose
0.33% at the opening, the Dax in Frankfurt .GDAXI would fall by 0.36% and the FTSE
in London .FTSE 0.26%.
    Investors' attention is focused on the G20 summit that will take
Friday and Saturday in Japan, with the most anticipated event
scheduled meeting between US President Donald Trump and his counterpart
Chinese Xi Jinping on the trade.
    The latest announcements from Washington should not prompt
investors to optimism. A representative of the US administration
said Monday that Donald Trump saw this interview as a chance to
Beijing's position on the trade dispute and that it was "at
at ease "with all the possible outcomes to the discussions he will lead with Xi
    On the other subject of market concern, that of the tensions
geopolitical relations between the United States and Iran, the ministry spokesman
Iranian Foreign Minister said that the United States decision
to impose sanctions on the supreme leader of the Islamic revolution, the ayatollah
Ali Khamenei, and other senior representatives of Iran closed definitively
the diplomatic channel between the two countries.
    Investors will closely follow the interventions of several
members of the Federal Reserve, including its chairman Jerome Powell, who
will speak on the economic outlook and the monetary policy from
from 17:00 GMT.
    "It's still possible that Powell will come back on the interpretation
accommodating market of the last FOMC meeting but we
believe it will strengthen its announcements (opening the way for a rate cut) ",
said Kevin Cummins, an economist at NatWest Markets, who expects a
rate cut of 25 basis points at the next meeting of the
monetary policy of the Fed in July.
    Capgemini CAPP.PA announced that it would buy Altran ALTT.PA for
3.6 billion euros, excluding debt, as part of a friendly offer at 14 euros
per share supposed to give birth to a global player of the
digital transformation of industrial enterprises. The offer of
Capgemi represents a premium of 22% over Altran's closing price
Monday night (11.47 euros).
    The New York Stock Exchange finished in a disorganized Monday after the record level
Friday by the S & P-500 index in the hopes of a decline in rates of the
Federal Reserve. .NFR
    The Dow Jones Index .DJI nibbled 0.03% while the S & P-500 .SPX
yielded 0.17% and the Nasdaq Composite .IXIC fell 0.32%.
    The Nikkei .N225 on the Tokyo Stock Exchange ended down 0.43%, penalized
by the uncertainty over the evolution of the trade dispute between Washington and
Beijing and the strength of the yen.
    Sign of concern about the Sino-US trade situation,
CSI 300 mainland Chinese mainland .CSI300 gives up
1.1%, after touching last week a high since early May.
    The dollar index is unchanged against a basket of reference currencies but
remains close to a low since mid-March, weakened by expectations of
lower rates in the United States. .DXY
    The euro took the opportunity to climb to a high of three months, at 1.1412
dollar. EUR =
    The yen, a safe haven par excellence, gains about 0.3% and is treated at 107
for one dollar, after strengthening to 106.77, a level he had not
more reached since January 3rd.
    Ten-year US10YT = RR yields are slightly down,
just above 2%. In Europe, the German Bund of the same date DE10YT = RR
does not evolve in the first exchanges at -0.307%.
    Oil prices are evolving into negative territory in a climate of renewal
concern about global demand for crude oil. US light crude
(West Texas Intermediate, WTI) CLc1 loses 0.4% to 57.7 dollars per barrel and the
Brent LCOc1 fell back to 64.7 dollars.

    Gold reached its highest level in six years, at $ 1,438.63 an ounce, at
the favor of the falling dollar and latent tensions between the United States
and Iran.
