April 24 (Reuters) - European shares pulled back from eight-month highs on Wednesday as worries over China putting policy-easing measures on hold offset upbeat earnings in the region from Credit Suisse and SAP.
The pan-regional STOXX 600 index was down 0.1 percent by 0732 GMT. The benchmark index has notched gains in the past eight consecutive sessions, with a trend of rebounding from a weaker open.
Asian shares were also weak despite the S&P 500 hitting an all-time closing high overnight on boosts to earnings, as investors worried over Beijing slowing the pace of policy easing for the world's second-largest economy.
Germany's DAX eked out a gain ahead of the country's Ifo business climate data, due at 0800 GMT, while all other major regional bourses were in the red.

Results from Credit Suisse will be followed by those from UBS Group AG and Barclays on Thursday and Deutsche Bank on Friday.
Top performers on STOXX 600 was payments company Wirecard and business software company SAP which also kept the Germany's DAX afloat.
