Wednesday preview: US producer prices in focus
US producer price data for August will be in the spotlight on Wednesday in the run-up to the Federal Reserve's next policy meeting on 17-18 September.
Consumer price figures for August had surprised to the upside as the impact of the trade tariffs on Chinese exports began to filtre through and markets were keen to gauge what further pressures might be in the pipeline.
Nevertheless, consensus was expecting the year-on-year rate of increase in so-called final demand prices to be unchanged versus July's level at 1.7%.
Across the Channel meanwhile, the only economic reports due out were a reading on Spanish industrial production for July and on the Portuguese CPI release for August.
No major economic reports were scheduled to be published in the UK.
