PARIS, Jan 8 (Reuters) - European shares dipped on Tuesday,
tracking losses on Wall Street and with a key blue-chip index
halted by a major resistance level, as investors braced for
sluggish corporate results in the upcoming earnings season.

provisionally closed 0.1 percent lower at 1,160.45 points,
drifting lower along with U.S. indexes.

also fell 0.1 percent, to 2,691.73 points.
