MNI European Morning Briefing

     LONDON (MNI) - The economic docket kicks off on Friday with French Non-Farm
Payrolls data and Industrial Production figures at 0745GMT.
     Next up are Italian Industrial Production figures at 0900GMT.
     At 0930GMT a tranche of UK data are released. Industrial Production,
Manufacturing Production, Output in the Construction Industry and Trade Balance
data are all on the schedule.

Output is forecast to have fallen 1.0%.
     Bundesbank Board member Andreas Dombret will deliver speech at the 63rd
credit policy conference, in Frankfurt at 1000GMT.

Financial Services Summit organised by the European Policy Forum, in Windsor,

100.7 in early November after surging to that point in October.
     Rounding off a quiet end to the week the St. Louis Fed Real GDP Nowcast is
on the docket at 1600GMT, followed swiftly by the New York Fed GDP Nowcast at
