Asian markets are mixed this morning with no significant movers as volumes remain subdued. The Nikkei is slightly higher and resuming trading following yesterday's holiday.

In Europe, equity futures are little changed ahead of some key economic data. The UK will release CPI and RPI, the Eurozone CPI, whilst there are ZEW surveys out of Germany.

In the US, markets closed slightly higher after Citigroup released better than expected earnings. Today we have CPI and Industrial production data, and corporate earnings from Johnson and Johnson, Goldman, Coca Cola and Yahoo.
