European Markets:    

European markets traded sideways, with earnings having little to do with market trend and overall low volumes and zero momentum. Health care and travel stocks lagged the markets while banks and Autos offset the move closing higher on strength in Deutsche Bank and VW. Whitbread.uk on the other hand disappointed investors with a soft earnings report, sending the stock five percent lower.
