EUROPE SEEN OPENING HIGHER, EYES ON GERMAN GDP (0530 GMT)

European shares are expected to open slightly higher in a second day of gains in relief to Washington's decision to delay tariffs on some Chinese imports, with the release of the Q2 GDP flash data for Germany, which is expected to fall 0.1% from Q1, squarely in focus.

Spreadbetters at IG expect London's FTSE to open 21 points higher at 7,272, Frankfurt's DAX to open 20 points higher at 11,770, and Paris' CAC to open 14 points higher at 5,377

Over in Asia, stocks joined a global equities surge as the tariff relief offset a raft of disappointing China data for July.
