July 9 (Reuters) - European shares opened lower on Tuesday in what could be their third straight day of losses as German shares fell sharply due to a profit warning from chemicals giant BASF.
Amid dimming hopes of a sharp cut in U.S. interest rates this month that has been weighing on riskier assets since late last week, the pan-European STOXX 600 index fell 0.4% by 0714 GMT, in line with Asian peers and Wall Street overnight.
German shares tumbled 0.8%.
In the latest evidence of the U.S.-China trade war squeezing businesses, German chemicals firm BASF slumped 5.3% on warning that profit would fall below forecasts for the second quarter and the full year.
This hit fellow chemicals company Bayer, which fell 1%, taking Europe's chemicals index down 1.7%.
Nordic lender Danske Bank, which has been struggling to restore trust among investors after disclosing a major money laundering scandal at one of its branches, cut its 2019 earnings forecast for the second time, sending its shares 2.5% lower.
Deutsche Bank fell 1.6%, adding to Monday's 5.4% slide as it began to slash 18,000 jobs in a 7.4 billion euro ($8.3 billion) "reinvention" that will lead to yet another annual loss.
