AMSTERDAM/LONDON: European stocks sank on Thursday, posting their worst session in two months with all sectors in the red as concerns about the resilience of economic recovery sent investors fleeing to bonds. The pan-European STOXX 600 index dropped 1.8% , with a European Central Bank move to shift its inflation target to 2% from "below but close to" that figure seen as dovish and doing little to cap declines.

"Achieving 2% inflation won't be easy," said Jai Malhi, global market strategist at J.P. Morgan Asset Management.

"With low inflation even more entrenched in the euro zone, this change from the European Central Bank means policy will remain loose for even longer."

The day's slide pushed the STOXX 600 into negative territory for the month, putting it on course to break a five-month winning streak. It is now 2% away from record highs. Until Wednesday, the index was only off 0.2% from the peak of 460.51.

Miners were down 2.8%, while automakers fell about 2.3% as BMW and Volkswagen slipped after the European Union fined them a total of $1 billion for emissions cartel. Dutch technology investor Prosus, which has a 29% stake in Chinese tech giant Tencent, fell 4.1% as the sector came under pressure globally.

German automotive lighting group Hella slipped 1.4% after brakes maker Knorr-Bremse dropped plans to acquire a 60% stake in the company. Knorr-Bremse shares, meanwhile, jumped 7.3% to top the STOXX 600. Remote connectivity software specialist Teamviewer tumbled 14.3% on weaker-than-expected billings growth in the second quarter. British food delivery company Deliveroo rose 2.3% after it posted 88% jump in orders during the June quarter.
