Market attention lately is largely adjusted to continuing Brexit discussions, while negotiations over UK withdrawal from the European Union continue to be an important obstacle. On Wednesday evening U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May spoke to EU heads in Brussels and gave guarantees to both sides that she could still strike a deal.
But, leaders at the Brussels event were left frustrated because England failed to propose any new suggestions to open the troubled Irish border question. Both sides have accepted and agree to continue negotiating, though it was decided inadequate. The FTSE 100 is assumed to begin around 2 points higher at 7,054, while both the DAX and CAC saw little change at 5,143 and 11,714 respectively.
