By Investors Hub

European stocks have tumbled on Wednesday as investors fret about an escalating trade war between the world’s two largest economies.

The U.K.?s FTSE 100 Index, the German DAX Index and the French CAC 40 Index are all down by 1 percent.

Indivior shares have fallen sharply in London. The company expects its fiscal 2018 net revenue and adjusted net income to be below previous expectations, because of recent U.S. market developments for SUBOXONE and early uptake levels of SUBLOCADE.
