Tuesday preview: UK Supreme Court, Middle East tensions in the spotlight
The focus on Tuesday will be on the UK Supreme Court's ruling on the Prime Minister's decision to prorogue Parliament for five weeks and allegations that he misled the Queen by asking her for permission to suspend the Chamber without explaining that his intent was to impede further debate on Brexit.
Against that backdrop, investors will continue to monitor events in the Middle East, including Saudi progress on returning the Kingdom's crude oil output to its levels from before last weekend's attacks and the response of the international community.
The flow of regularly-scheduled economic events meanwhile is set to be quite sparse, although data on US industrial production in August is set for release at 1330 BST.
Meanwhile, across the Channel, the ZEW institute will publish its economic confidence index for the Eurozone in September.
