The disappointing ZEW survey results for the Eurozone seem to have pressured the common currency on Tuesday. The Economic Sentiment Index for the Eurozone fell from 61.2 in July to 42.7 in August, which was well above the market expectation of 72 points. Furthermore, German economic sentiment fell from 63.3 to 40.4.

The US economic summary will present non-farm productivity and unit labor costs for the second quarter later in the session. In addition, Wednesday will be an important day for the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, which will release consumer price index (CPI) data for July.
