European Markets    

European markets traded higher to close the month with considerable gains, other than the FTSE who was red for September on sterling strength and Brexit worries. All major markets closed the trading day in the green led by mining, media, health care and banks while Autos were mixed on VW weakness. Heading into earnings season, EU markets look to year highs, expected to be broken in the next week. The Catalan referendum is expected to cast a shade on trading Monday morning.
