European markets mixed with earnings, U.S. inflation in focus

·1 min

European markets showed a mixed performance on Tuesday as investors analyzed corporate earnings and awaited U.S. inflation data. The pan-European Stoxx 600 index slipped in early trade, as tech stocks experienced losses while mining stocks made gains. Last session, the continental blue chip index closed higher. Key events today include the release of the U.S. consumer price index and the ZEW economic sentiment survey for Germany and the euro zone. The Stoxx index has had a quiet February despite notable movements in individual stocks. Noteworthy corporate reports this week include those from Heineken, Airbus, Renault, NatWest, and Commerzbank.
