European Markets:  

EU markets traded sideways for the fourth day in a row this week, again on very little price action and not responding at all to the ECB press conference on the agenda. The EUSXX600 index closed higher 0.09%. Autos, Energy and Basic materials were the sectors lagging in the markets while Insurance stocks enjoyed a better than expected earnings report by Aviva.uk to close higher on the day. UK manufacturing production in the morning then NFP at 1:30 pm are the important news on the agenda Friday.
