European Markets    

EU markets traded mostly sideways as the “big news” day turned out to be quite the opposite of expected, leading most investors to stay on the sidelines. The ECB press conference didn’t change much for the EU markets and all major sectors and bourses stayed flat the whole trading day. The EXSXX600 index closed negative 0.01%. UK manufacturing and Canada employment change are the important news on the agenda Friday.
