Major currencies are keeping quieter once again, with the dollar little changed across the board. EUR/USD is sitting within a 8 pips range and that pretty much sums up the mood. US futures are also looking more muted, as all eyes are fixated on the upcoming US data this week. For today, we’ll have the PPI report later in the day.

Looking to European morning trade, there will be a couple of economic data releases to move things along. The most notable will be the UK labour market report. But considering that the BOE themselves are also feeling frustrated about the data accuracy as of late, it’s hard to really read much into the release. That said, it is still one to watch in case.

For some context, this has been an issue since last year already as ONS is adjusting their labour force survey (LFS) to improve the situation. However, there remains uncertainty on the reliability of the data as such.

In any case, broader markets will be more fixated on the US PPI report later in the day. That will make for another calm before the storm kind of session in Europe.
