European equities open higher to start the day

  • Eurostoxx +0.5%
  • Germany DAX +0.4%
  • France CAC 40 +0.3%
  • UK FTSE +0.2%
  • Spain IBEX +0.2%

This mirrors the mood in US futures, with S&P 500 futures seen up 17 points, or 0.4%, at the moment. But we’ll see if it can hold through to the end of the day. It might be a whole different landscape once Wall Street wakes up later in the day. Some thoughts from earlier here.
