Deutsche Bank shares tumbled Wednesday in an otherwise listless European stock market which paused ahead of a critical European Central Bank decision.

The Stoxx Europe 600 dropped 0.1% to 391.23.

The U.K. FTSE 100 fell 1% to 7,480.84, hurt after a brokerage downgrade of heavyweight miners Rio Tinto (RIO.LN) , BHP Group(BHP.LN) and Anglo American (AAL.LN) . See London Markets (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/miners-weigh-on-london-as-broker-calls-top-for-iron-ore-2019-07-24).

   The German DAX   rose 0.4% to 12,538.73 and the French CAC 40  lost 0.4% to 5,595.39. 

What's moving markets

The mood in markets was hurt after the U.S. Justice Department announced late Tuesday it was probing the U.S. technology giants (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/us-finally-admits-it-is-investigating-big-tech-for-antitrust-2019-07-23) that have carried stock markets higher.

Closer to home, purchasing managers indexes in Europe flagged rough economic conditions, with flash German manufacturing PMI (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/german-flash-manufacturing-pmi-slumps-to-seven-year-low-2019-07-24) sliding to an 84-month low of 43.1 in July. Eurozone manufacturing PMI fell to an 75-month low. Any reading below 50 indicates contracting conditions.

Against that weak backdrop, the ECB on Thursday is expected to lay the groundwork for an interest-rate cut in September.

Focus stocks

Deutsche Bank shares (DBK.XE) (DBK.XE) dropped over 2% to EUR6.96, moving the stumbling German lender near its 50-day moving average of EUR6.54. Deutsche Bank reported a EUR3.15 billion loss (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/deutsche-bank-reports-35-billion-quarterly-loss-2019-07-24) in the second quarter, after taking a 3.4 billion restructuring charge, which was larger than it previously flagged. Excluding the charge, it would've reported a lower-than-expected EUR231 million loss.

Deutsche Bank shares have lost 35% over the last 12 months.

Battered U.K. broadcaster ITV (ITV.LN) enjoyed some relief, with the stock jumping nearly 7%. The country's largest commercial broadcaster reported a 16% drop in first-half pretax profit and announced new cost savings. The stock is still down 34% over the last 12 months.

Shares of chip equipment maker ASM International (ASM.AE) leapt 5%, with the company reporting a doubling of second-quarter profit and new orders and a EUR100 million buyback program.
