  • Equities flat/lower; USD weaker.
  • An unusual supply calendar this morning. In syndication: UK launches new 30-Yr linker, while Spain sells 50-Yr. Also German linker auction, Netherlands Jul-31 DSL via DDA.
  • ECB's Visco speaks at 1030GMT, Lane at 1500GMT. Not much in data today (German exports a little better than expected; Italy IP up shortly).
