Aug 1 (Reuters) - European shares tracked Wall Street and Asian markets into the red on Thursday after the U.S. Federal Reserve dampened hopes of future cuts in U.S. interest rates, while Shell's lowest profit in more than two years knocked 4% off the oil major's value.
The losses were limited, however, by other, more positive results, including from Barclays and Standard Chartered , as well as London Stock Exchange Group's $27 billion merger with financial information firm Refinitiv.
The exchange operator, in whom Reuters News parent Thomson Reuters will take a 15% stake under the terms of the deal, rose 3.6% in early trade.
By 0708 GMT the pan-European benchmark stock index STOXX 600 had fallen 0.2%, with energy and mining giants the biggest drag as oil, iron ore and copper prices dipped.
