European stocks finished lower on Monday, as investors braced for the ramifications of another round of tariffs from the two major economies.
The pan-European Stoxx 600 ended provisionally down by 0.54 percent with almost every sector in the red. Autos were the worst performers following renewed uncertainty over U.S.-China trade relations. Monday marks the day when the latest round of tariffs — which target products from both the U.S. and China — come into effect.
BMW and a number of other German automakers also lost value after representatives of auto companies failed to reach a compromise with the German government on the retrofitting of diesel vehicles. German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday said she would finalize a decision on diesel car retrofits on October 1. Volkswagen fell 0.88 percent, Daimler dropped 2.6 percent and BMW dropped 2.51 percent.
Elsewhere across European stocks, Sky led the day's gains up by 8.6 percent. This followed news that the U.K. broadcaster recommended its shareholders accept an offer from Comcast for a $40 billion takeover. "As the price of the Comcast Offer is materially superior, it is in the best interests of all Sky shareholders to accept the Comcast Offer, " the company said.

On Wall Street, stocks opened lower, on the back of the intensifying trade dispute between the U.S. and China. Beijing reportedly cancelled trade talks with Washington as the new round of levies took effect.

At the same time, the U.K. government has denied reports over the weekend that it was planning to call a new snap election in November. The move would be an attempt to increase support for the Prime Minister and her efforts to reach a Brexit deal with Europe.
