U.S Durable Goods Orders in Todays Calendar

  • European indices set for higher open
  • GfK data support sentiment in Europe
  • US durable goods orders data 

European index futures are trading slightly higher ahead of the opening of the cash session. This follows good GfK data, which showed that German consumer confidence climbed to levels not seen in over a year. The US dollar continues to come under downward pressure against a basket of other G10 currencies. 

The economic calendar for the next day is modest, but includes some interesting data from the US. Investors’ attention will primarily turn to the reading on durable goods orders and the US oil inventories report. Volatility will also be created by quarterly reports from Wall Street and European companies.
