MORNING CALL: IT'S ECB DAY (0530 GMT)
Regardless of whether it's going to have any big impact on markets today the focus is
squarely on the European Central Bank's policy meeting.
The consensus is that rates will remain unchanged although investors expect signals from the
central bank which could possibly weaken the euro.
On the background are still worries over rising Brexit risks and possible further turbulence
in tech stocks, and it may be little surprise that following yesterday's rebound in Europe and
the U.S., futures are giving mixed signals at the moment.
The Euro STOXX 500 futures are up 0.3%, FTSE 100 futures are down 0.3% and Wall Street
futures are moving flat to slightly higher.
