Before the open - 09/09

We're expecting the FTSE to open a little higher as momentum from Asian markets carries on into Monday's session.

That comes after some stronger Asian data this weekend, as Chinese exports grew by 7.2 per cent in August, beating expectations of a six per cent rise.

Japan's Nikkei closed up 2.48 per cent on the good news.

Key events:

  • Eurozone August Sentix investor confidence at 09.30. Expected to rise from -4.9 to -2.8.
  • Greek July industrial production at 10.00.
