Not much direction in early trades
- German DAX futures -0.2%
- French CAC 40 futures -0.1%
- UK FTSE futures -0.1%
- Spanish IBEX futures flat
Very much mirrors sentiment seen in US equity futures, which are trading 0.1% lower at the moment. After the release of Chinese industrial output growth earlier – which was the weakest in 17 years – there isn’t much optimism for equities to be working with today.
