  • European indices set for flat opening
  • March’s CPI readings from France, Italy, Poland and euro area

European index futures point to a more or less flat opening of the cash session on the Old Continent today. This comes after an upbeat trading on Wall Street yesterday and in Asia earlier today. Safe haven currencies, like JPY or CHF, are pulling back while GBP and Antipodean currencies lead gains among G10 peers. Cryptocurrencies are trading higher while energy commodities are pulling back slightly.

Economic calendar for today includes some noteworthy releases. Traders will be offered CPI readings for March from France, Poland, Italy as well as a reading for the whole euro area. Data on US PCE inflation for February will be released in the early afternoon along with US personal income and spending data. Revision of UoM consumer sentiment index for March caps calendar of today’s releases. However, traders will also be offered remarks from ECB President Lagarde as well as 3 Fed members in the evening so EURUSD may see some volatility then.
