Ireland's ISEQ share index was little changed ahead of a crucial jobs report due from the US later today.
There was no major reaction on markets to news that the Bundesbank has slashed its growth forecast for Germany next year to 0.4 per cent from 1.6 per cent.
The ISEQ was down 3.85 points at 3,336 at 11.30 am; the Euro Stoxx was down 0.2 per cent and the FTSE fell 0.13 per cent.
