European equities open higher to start the day
A better start after the Friday turnaround
- Eurostoxx +0.3%
- Germany DAX +0.6%
- France CAC 40 +0.3%
- UK FTSE +0.6%
- Spain IBEX +0.5%
This follows the larger softer mood in Asia, but European equities are taking heart in a weakening currency from last week as they kick start the day a little higher. But the overall risk mood remains questionable, with the US observing a holiday today.
S&P 500 futures are down 0.6% while Nasdaq futures are down 1.4%, so that still points to some mixed tones in the market following the moves on Friday.
