American stock futures edge down on ascending concerns over Trump

On Wednesday, American share futures along with the greenback dipped on worries as for more American political turmoil after media reports told that Donald Trump asked then-FBI Director James Comey to cease a probe into Trump's ex-national security advisor.

The reports managed to raise questions as for whether obstruction of justice charges could be laid versus Trump, thus weakening confidence in the American president's ability to push through rather an aggressive stimulus program, which traders had been banking on since his win in November.

The world's most liquid stock futures, the S&P 500, sank 0.5%, hitting 2,385, although the benchmark managed to stay above its recent minimums around 2,379.

European stocks are expected to start lower, with spread-betters looking at drops of 0.6% for Germany's DAX, 0.4% in France's CAC and also 0.2% for the UK’s FTSE.

Additionally, outside Japan MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific stocks lost 0.3%, while Japanese Nikkei declined 0.5%.
