Absent relevant releases or events in Euroland, the trade disputes between the US, China and Canada continue to remain in centre stage and prompt some cautious sentiment among investors.

Looking ahead, M3 Money Supply and Private Sector Loans figures are due in the euro area. Across the pond, Durable Goods Orders for the month of May are also expected, seconded by advanced Goods Trade Balance during the same period and Pending Home Sales.
