    Investors looked ahead to key central bank policy decisions from the US Federal Reserve and the Bank of England. The US Federal Reserve holds a two-day policy meeting on Tuesday, 31 October 2017, and Wednesday, 1 November 2017, at which it is expected to leave rates unchanged. Most market participants expect the US central bank to resume hiking rates in December 2017.

    The Bank of England is widely expected to raise rates on Thursday, 2 November 2017, reversing its monetary easing following Britain's June 2016 vote to leave the European Union.

    Eurostat, the European Union's statistics agency, said Tuesday, 31 October 2017, that the eurozone economy grew by 0.6% during the July to September period. Though that's slightly down on the stellar 0.7% tick recorded in the second quarter.

    Separately, Eurostat said unemployment fell to 8.9% in September from 9% the previous month. That's the lowest rate since January 2009.

    Elsewhere, Eurostat said annual inflation in the eurozone dipped to 1.4% in October from 1.5% as the core rate, which strips out volatile items, surprisingly fell to 0.9% from 1.1%.

    Most Asian stocks ended on a mixed note following weak closing in the US market and as investors digested data that showed China's official manufacturing PMI for October missed economists' expectations. Japan's Nikkei 225 ended lower by 0.04% after the Bank of Japan (BoJ) lowered some of its price forecasts and left policy unchanged Tuesday. The Japanese central bank voted 8-1 to keep its short- and long-term interest rates unchanged as it continues to inject huge amounts of cash into the financial sector in the hope of reaching its 2% inflation goal.

    An official gauge of China's factory activity edged down in October, indicating softening business activity after hitting a more-than-five-year high in September. The official manufacturing purchasing managers' index fell to 51.6 in October from 52.4 in September, government data showed. Separately, China's official nonmanufacturing purchasing managers' index, a measure of activity outside of factory gates, fell to 54.3 in October from 55.4 in September, the National Bureau of Statistics said

    US stocks ended lower overnight as a report that the House of Representatives is considering phasing in a cut to corporate taxes rather than enacting them immediately weighed on investors' confidence. Tax cuts are the centerpiece in President Donald Trump's business-friendly agenda and are viewed as critical to sustaining the stock market rally. The Dow Jones Industrial Average shed 0.4%, the S&P 500 index fell 0.3%, and the Nasdaq Composite Index set a fresh intraday record, but slid 2.30 points to 6,698.96.
