The German Consumer confidence improved to -33.90, not quite as much as had been expected, that was 33.00. 
Today we are awaiting earnings of the first big tech company with Microsoft reporting after the close with a severe slowdown projected. International PMI will e watched to see if Risk sentiment can maintain the momentum. Maybe the data is better than feared?
