Japanese shares were slugged on Monday by a one-two combination of a higher yen and a selloff in the tech sector, while the euro struggled with speculation of more policy easing at home. Financial spreadbetters expected Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE and Germany's DAX .GDAXI to each lose 0.8 percent at the open, while the S&P 500 E-Mini contract was off 0.16 percent.
