Europe and US today

Categories: Daily Comments


In Europe today, look out for Eurozone consumer confidence and German unemployment data, earlier today Chinese Premier Wen said that China is willing to invest in the European bond market, however the impact on the peripheral bond market is minimal in early trade. European equity futures are pointing to a lower open of around 50bps.


For the US today, we have jobless claims data, but general activity is likely to remain very much muted ahead of Jackson Hole tomorrow.
