Wednesday preview: US private sector payrolls, China factory PMI in focus
Investors' focus at the end of the month will be firmly on the US jobs market with any big surprises possibly feeding into expectations for central bank policy across the Pond, even if not decisively at the current juncture.
Ahead of the release of the 'all-important' US non-farm payrolls report two days later, at 1315 BST consultancy ADP will publish its monthly private payrolls report.
While the ADP measure often diverges widely from the non-farm payrolls numbers, it can influence economists' forecasts for the Department of Labor's official report.
Consensus is for a dip in the rate of private sector payrolls growth from 978,000 for May to 530,000 in June.
Another potentially market-moving report is due out overnight, the Chinese National Bureau of Statistics's manufacturing sector Purchasing Managers' Index for June.
On home shores, at 0700 BST the Office for National Statistics will publish a final reading on first quarter UK gross domestic product.
Across the Channel, the spotlight will be on German unemployment data covering the month of June and a preliminary reading on euro area consumer prices for that same month.
