In the bond market, U.S. Treasury prices edged higher, pushing yields lower; the benchmark 10-year yield slipped 2 bps to 2.87% as a $21B 10-year note auction drew a high yield of 2.889% on a bid-to-cover of 2.50, slightly above the average of the prior 12 auctions.

Shares in Reckitt Benckiser and tobacco makers British American Tobacco and Imperial Brands fell between 0.4 per cent and 1.9 per cent.

Johnson Controls was up 1.6 percent after saying it would consider selling a business that makes batteries for vehicles. Rapid gains in technology stocks have already powered the Nasdaq back to its record levels. London's FTSE 100 fell 0.1 percent to 7,208.
