European equities fell in early trading on Monday after disappointing macroeconomic data from China raised concerns about the pace of economic growth in the world’s second-biggest economy. The STOXX Europe 600 Oil and Gas index dropped 1.2%, the biggest sectoral fall in Europe, while the basic resources index fell 0.4%, tracking two-year low crude oil prices and three-month low copper prices.
