Friday preview: Euro area Q2 GDP, IAG in the spotlight
Financial markets' focus at the of the week will pivot to the Continent, where preliminary readings for second quarter gross domestic product are scheduled in several countries, including in the European Union's four largest economies.
They will be followed at 1000 BST by a reading on euro area-wide GDP.
A raft of economic data is also due out across the Pond.
They include figures on personal incomes and spending in June and a final reading on consumer confidence in July, the latter courtesy of the University of Michigan.
On home shores meanwhile, the sole new data point due out is Lloyds's UK business barometer for July.
For IAG's first half, UBS's Jarrod Castle has penciled second quarter revenues of €1.3bn on the back of improved traffic levels and up from €1.0bn in the prior quarter.
Losses before interest and taxes meanwhile are expected to have narrowed from -€1.4bn one year back to -€1.1bn this time around.
According to Castle, investors will be focus on the group's forward bookings, the impact of the traffic light system, the potential for a further reopening of the market, especially the North Atlantic routes, cash burn and any financial building blocks for the back half of 2021.
