There is not much of note in terms of economic data during the European session so investors will focus on US Services PMI and home sales.



In the FX space, the USD is taking a breather following last week’s rally with most pairs trading within narrow ranges.



As for commodities, gold was nearly flat at $1,305 an ounce, while crude oil dropped 0.42%to $101.65 a barrel.
