European Markets:    

European markets traded sideways, opening the trading week on a very flat note. The technology sector was the best performing sector while banks lagged, closing the day lower 0.7%. The Catalan crisis will be the focus for traders this week as investors digest more corporate news and the ongoing Spain constitutional crisis. Thursday will be “the day” for the EU markets this week as the ECB press conference and rate decision will take over other news.
