The Opening Belle
Risk sentiment has ticked higher to start the week.
Australia's ASX & Japan's Nikkei both up around 1%, and U.S futures well in the green too.
European futures point to a positive open, with the market looking beyond new Covid restrictions for now. Eurostoxx futures +0.4%.
Chinese data overnight: GDP 'disappointed', but retail sales picked up.
Overall, a very positive data set.
GDP missed the forecasts, coming in at 4.9% YoY vs 5.2% forecast.
It is still heading in the right direction, and means the economy has now grown 0.7% so far this year.
