Europe closes sharply lower for the 2nd straight session, helped along by weak U.S. jobs data, and also responding to the idea last week's summit (and resulting moonshot in stocks) was a whole lot of nothing. Stoxx 50 -2.3%, Germany -1.9%, France -1.9%, Italy -2.3%, Spain -3.2%, U.K. -0.5%. The euro plumbs 2012 lows, buying 1.2300.
