Equities slip heading into weekend

Global stocks are mainly flat-to-lower as the excitement of the Fed's lack of tapering wears off and investors eye Germany's election on Sunday, when Chancellor Angela Merkel is expected to win a third term.

The rise of the euroskeptic Alternative for Germany party, though, could cause a bit of market nervousness if it makes significant headway.

Japan -0.2%, Hong Kong, China closed. India -2.1% after the RBI surprisingly raises interest rates.

EU Stoxx 50 -0.05%, London flat, Paris -0.1%, Frankfurt -0.1%, Milan -0.1%, Madrid -0.1%.
