EU Market View
European stock markets are seen opening mixed Tuesday, with investors having to sift through the conflicting impulses of strong Chinese export data and a setback in the progress towards a Covid-19 vaccine. Looking ahead, highlights from the macroeconomic calendar include German CPI (Final) and ZEW, UK Unemployment, US CPI, Fed Discount Rate Minutes, Apple Event, EU Ministers on Brexit, and Amazon Prime Day. Earlier Tuesday, official data showed that China's exports grew at a slightly faster rate in September, up 9.9% on the year last month, compared with a 9.5% increase in August. This marks a fourth straight month of gains, suggesting that a global economic recovery is underway.
European economic news was less impressive, with German consumer prices falling in September, confirming preliminary data, and the UK unemployment rate climbing to 4.5% in August, higher than expected.
