Key Quotes



"The economic calendar is sparse but promises us more signs of Eur/US economic divergence, starting with the Euro Area industrial production data this morning (10:00 a.m BST). Strong US retail sales tomorrow will however be offset by Janet Yellen's semi-annual testimony to the Senate."
