European stocks were lower in early trade, reducing their weekly gain, as commodity companies followed drops in oil and metal prices. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index was down 0.4 percent.

Miners retreated for the second day, after hitting their highest level since 2014. Banks and automakers also fell. The pan-European benchmark declined on Thursday for the first time in eight sessions, breaking its longest rally in 19 months. The sentiment of analysts have mostly been upbeat about European equities after the Stoxx 600 posted its highest close since December 2015 in the week.

Allianz SE advanced 2.8 percent after the Europe's biggest insurance company proposed spending three billion euros on purchasing back its own shares after reporting a higher than expected profit growth. Shares of Royal Vopak NV plunged nine percent, the biggest decliner of the Stoxx 600, following its announcement that this year's earnings will not surpass 2016's figures.

Volkswagen AG led losses in automakers, off by 2.3 percent after global sales of its own brand vehicles declined in January. Stoxx 600 banks are on track for the fifth consecutive monthly gain, which will be the longest winning streak in three years.

Oil prices rallied on Tuesday on worries that Venezuela's crude production could further decline after a controversial election and potential U.S. sanctions on the OPEC-member.

The U.S. has also hardened its stance on Iran and laid out a list of sweeping demands, which could further limit the country's crude oil exports and bolster oil prices.

Brent crude futures stood at $79.39 per barrel up 17 cents or 0.2 percent from their last settlement. Brent rose above $80 for the first time since November 2014 in the previous week.

U.S. WTI crude futures stood at $72.47 per barrel, up 23 cents or 0.3 percent.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro faced international criticism on Monday following his re-election in a controversial vote denounced by critics as void, solidifying autocracy in the economic crisis-stricken oil producer.

According to analysts, oil stockpiles are currently tight and the U.S. will likely toughen sanctions on Venezuela which will make the situation in the crude producing country worse and in turn means that continued declining Venezuelan production can be expected. Combined with the expectations for declining Iranian production as the U.S. pressures allies to lower their imports, these factors will drive oil prices up to $80 per barrel and even beyond.

Worries that looming U.S. sanctions on Iran will limit that nation's crude exports have also provided support for oil prices in recent weeks.

The dollar stood below a five-month peak versus a basket of currencies on Tuesday, catching its breath after a broad rally inspired by rising U.S. bond yields and relief at an easing of U.S.-China trade tensions.

The dollar's index against a basket of six major currencies last stood at 93.564, down from a five-month peak of 94.058 set on Monday.

The greenback's jump to that Monday high had marked a gain of 5.4 percent in about a month, compared to a mid-April trough of 89.229, which was its lowest since late March.

Optimism about synchronous global economic growth had been one of the factors that had weighed on the dollar earlier this year. Over the past month, however, the dollar has been buoyed by generally strong U.S. economic data that has backed the Federal Reserve's monetary policy tightening stance this year, as well as rising U.S. bond yields that bolstered the greenback's yield appeal.

The prospect of a resolution to the U.S.-China trade tensions has further added to the dollar's strength.

Against the yen, the dollar slid 0.1 percent to 110.89 yen, down from Monday's four-month peak of 111.395 yen.

The euro traded at $1.1782, near a more than six-month low of $1.1715 notched on Monday amid continued political uncertainty in Italy.

Italy's far-right League and the 5-Star Movement agreed on a candidate to lead their planned coalition government and to implement spending plans seen by some investors as threatening the sustainability of the country's debt pile.

This week will bring about a further test for determined euro bulls with the release of “flash" PMI data for May on Wednesday, and markets waiting to see whether the first-quarter slowdown in Europe spilled over to later months.

U.S. magazine Consumer Reports did not give its seal of approval to Tesla Inc's Model 3 sedan, stating it will not recommend the vehicle because of its flaws.

Consumer Reports, which gives an annual rating of cars sold in the U.S. said that despite its tests finding plenty of things to like about the Model 3 and it was a thrill to drive, it had 'big flaws'.

The influential publication declined to recommend the Model 3 and criticized the car for having overly long stopping distances and a center touchscreen that is not user friendly.

It also said that the Model 3 braked slower than a full-sized pickup truck. Tesla's stopping distance of 152 feet when braking at 60 miles per hour was 'far worse' than an contemporary car tested by Consumer Reports and around seven feet longer than the stopping distance of a Ford full-sized pick up, it said.

According to Tesla its own testing had found braking distances of 133 feet on average and as low as 126 feet with all tires available.

The report came as Tesla CEO Elon Musk bolstered shares of the carmaker by as much as 4 percent higher with weekend tweets showing that the company was initially aiming to deliver higher-prices, more profitable fully-loaded editions of the Model 3. The car is perceived to be pivotal to Tesla's profitability at a time when it is struggling to reverse production shortfalls, facing reports of crashes involving its cars, and challenged by increasing skepticism over its finances.
