Today’s Economic Calendar

  • European markets set for higher opening

Futures markets point to a higher opening of today’s European cash session. DAX futures are trading over 100 points above yesterday’s cash close. The day ahead looks interesting thanks to top-tier macro releases as well as some top-tier earnings releases. Investors will be offered a flash CPI report for April from Germany at 1:00 pm BST, that is expected to show a slight deceleration in price growth.

When it comes to earnings, investors will be offered financial reports from Amazon, Apple, Twitter and Intel, among others.
