In Europe, industrial production data were released that were mostly positive surprises. In Germany a rise of 0.4% was recorded in June, France advanced 1.4% and in Spain 1.1%. The downside came with a 2.1% drop in Italy. The Eurozone data will be reported next Friday, which is expected to show a rise of 0.1%.

The great attention of the market is focused on the US employment report Nonfarm payrolls point to a 250,000 rise according to market consensus. This would imply a slowdown, but still a robust market. The expectation is that the unemployment rate will remain at 3.6%.
