    3 Numbers: Eurozone PPI deflation test, US ADP jobs, factory orders
    The pan-European macro trend is improving, with some relief in stubbornly high jobless numbers. The good news should continue on the inflation front today, with only mild signs of deflation in the Eurozone producer price index release for July. On the other side of the Atlantic, the ADP Employment Report should provide clues on the official jobs report due out on Friday. And US factory orders are likely to show signs of a modest increase in July, against the background of a weak trend.

    Morning Markets: An unconvincing recovery
    A relief rally and bargain-hunting bonanza that sent US equities sharply higher on the opening yesterday evaporated soon afterwards as fear about China's ability to manage its economy seeped back into the market.

    3 Numbers: UK retail steady, US mortgages, US durable goods
