Additionally, important economic data are expected including the inflation rate YoY on Tuesday, the Retail Sales MoM on Friday as well as earnings from big banks like Citigroup, JPMorgan, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, and Morgan Stanley. 

On major EU-UK news, many EU countries (UK, Spain, Italy, and the Czech Republic) are preparing new and tightened restrictions for fighting the rising coronavirus spread.  Philip Lane, the ECB’s chief economist, gave an interview to The Wall Street Journal and said “The next phase is going to be tougher,”  while  “The current inflation level remains far away from our goal” of just below 2%. Eurozone inflation fell to minus 0.3% in September.”. According to FT, EU regulators are ready to introduce a “hit list” of up to 20 large internet companies implementing tougher rules in order to “contain” their market power.
