• German DAX futures -0.1%
  • UK FTSE futures flat

This comes after a more mixed showing yesterday, with the risk mood leaning slightly softer today. In particular, tech is the laggard after having observed Microsoft's slowing sales outlook. But also, the hotter inflation data in Australia and New Zealand is also weighing on overall sentiment. S&P 500 futures are down 0.4% while Nasdaq futures are down 0.6% currently.
