European Markets:  

EU major markets closed flat to open the trading week. The Financial sector underperformed the markets yet the DAX and FTSE managed to close the day in the green. DB.de was the big loser on the day as the proposed merger with the LSE seems to be put on hold by regulators. The EUSXX600 index closed lower 0.13%. There is no important news on the agenda Tuesday morning.

Earnings on the agenda Tuesday morning: Arkema.fr, Bollore.fr.
