Major focus will remain on German inflation data, scheduled at 0600 GMT on Wednesday, which is expected to remain unchanged at 8.5%.
An unchanged German inflation reading doesn’t trim the odds of a rate hike by the European Central Bank (ECB), the euro remains bid.
On the other side, UK GDP for the second quarter is scheduled to be released at 0600 on Thursday, and a lower consensus is weighing on the pound.
A preliminary estimate is for the annualised UK GDP to print at 2.8% vs. 8.7% in the former release.
The quarterly data is expected to report a shrink in economic activities by 0.2% against the expansion of 0.8% prior.
