Markets in Europe are forecast to open lower Thursday as uncertainty surrounding internal U.S. policy continues to weigh on investor sentiment despite lessening tensions from North Korea. The FTSE 100 is expected to open 22 points lower at 7,411; the French CAC is seen down 23 points at 5,153; and the German DAX is on track to open 48 points down at 12,215.

President Donald Trump disbanded two high-profile business advisory councils Wednesday after seeing a mass exodus from chief executives over his response to violence in Charlottesville over the weekend. Meantime, minutes from the Federal Reserve's latest meeting Wednesday showed policymakers divided over their view on inflation and their approach to interest rate hikes. In Europe, new data released by the British Chambers of Commerce Thursday showed that exporter confidence has softened due to currency fluctuations and a shortage of skilled workers post-Brexit. This comes as Office for National Statistics announced that the number of EU citizens working in the U.K. has hit a record high. In corporate earnings, Austrian construction company Wienerberger, Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas and British home improvement retailer Kingfisher are all due to report. More»

Meantime, in the U.S., stock indexes closed little changed in the previous session. However, the dollar hoarded significant gains on Wednesday on the back of stronger-than-expected retail data. Back in Europe, the British government said Wednesday it does not wish to have any border posts between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, according to a new position paper on Brexit. The paper suggested the European Union shared similar views yet Brexit critics argued the U.K.'s proposals lacked credible detail.

European stock markets opened higher on Tuesday as tensions between the U.S. and North Korea showed signs of subsiding, prompting investors to return to riskier assets. The pan-European Stoxx 600 started the day 0.32 higher percent with the majority of sectors and all major bourses in positive territory. Basic resources and oil and gas were the sole laggards, while autos and food and beverages posted gains as trading kicked off. Autos climbed 0.6 percent higher, led by Fiat Chrysler which held onto gains seen Monday following reports that it has received at least one bid from a Chinese automaker. Food retailer Sainsbury was up 0.75 percent after pressing pause on a proposed £130 million ($168 million) takeover of grocery wholesaler Nisa amid competition concerns. Hargreaves Lansdown fell 1.3 percent despite reporting a 21 percent increase in pre-tax profits for the year ended in June.

Asian markets moved higher on the news, while U.S. stocks posted their best day of the summer during Monday trade. Nevertheless, other troubles continued to plague the White House as several key business figures departed Trump's manufacturing council following his failure to initially condemn the violence of white supremacists in Charlottesville over the weekend. Three CEOs - Merck's Kenneth Frazier, Intel's Brian Krzanich and Under Armour's Kevin Plank - have all stepped down.

The Nikkei 225 fell nearly one percent despite second-quarter Japan GDP surprising to the upside as investors in Asia digested the release of a barrage of China data on Monday. Japan's benchmark Nikkei 225 index fell 0.94 percent as markets re-opened after a public holiday last week. Markets appeared to shrug off headlines that the Japanese economy grew at an annualized rate of 4 percent in the second quarter of the year ending in June compared to the previous year. That easily topped the 2.5 percent rise forecast in a Reuters poll. The yen softened against the dollar following the GDP beat, with the greenback fetching 109.20 yen at 7:52 a.m. HK/SIN compared to levels around 109.14 yen before the data release. The Japanese currency last traded at 109.37 yen to the dollar. "Although it is usually exactly the wrong thing to respond to volatile Japanese GDP data by revising full year forecasts, arithmetically, it is going to be hard for us to see only the 1.2 percent for 2017 we currently have penciled in," said ING Asia Head of Research Robert Carnell in a note, adding that an upgrade now seemed "extremely likely." Meanwhile, South Korea's Kospi rose 0.47 percent after being pressured by geopolitical tensions for most of the last week. In Australia, the S&P/ASX 200 climbed 0.51 percent, with the broader index driven by gains in the information technology and energy sub-indexes. The heavily-weighted financials sub-index was up 0.76 percent. Greater China markets trended higher even though a raft of data released Monday missed expectations. Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index gained 0.94 percent. On the mainland, the Shanghai Composite edged up 0.11 percent while the Shenzhen Composite jumped 1.019 percent. More»

European stocks are set to open higher on Monday morning after senior U.S. officials sought to play down risks of a military conflict with North Korea.

In a commentary published in the Wall Street Journal on Sunday, the pair said, "The U.S. has no interest in regime change or accelerated reunification of Korea." On the data front, Euro Area industrial production for June is set to be released at around 10 a.m. London time. Meanwhile, the Standard Life and Aberdeen Asset Management merger is poised to become effective on Monday. More»
