EU Market View

Asian equity markets were subdued, and US equity futures traded choppy after last Friday’s losses on Wall Street. US Democrats and White House officials were nearing a deal on Friday on a stopgap spending bill to fund the government, which was hampered by a dispute over funding for farmers. The death of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ginsberg has opened another front in the election battle with President Trump intending to make a nomination in the week ahead. Looking ahead, highlights from the macroeconomic calendar include ECB's Lagarde, Fed's Brainard, and Williams and Kaplan speeches.
