► European stocks saw a weak start into the day sliding 0.6% lower. German consumer sentiment showed marginal improvement but remained at very low levels (up -27.8 from the previous -28.3), with no signs of sustainable recovery. French video game publisher Ubisoft announced a significant convertible bond placement, raising €494.5 million. The proceeds are intended for general corporate activities and repurchasing outstanding bonds. This announcement led to an 8% drop in Ubisoft's stock, impacting investor sentiment. The focus in Europe is now on the upcoming Eurozone inflation figures on Thursday, along with Eurozone PMIs on Friday.
► US futures pointed towards a weaker open, with the Nasdaq down 0.2% and the S&P 500 down 0.1%. The US 10-year Treasury yield saw a slight increase to 4.40% after a sharp decline yesterday following strong demand for bonds. Investors are awaiting key economic data this week, including the Fed’s preferred measure of underlying inflation.
