Major European stock markets started the first trading session of the week barely above the flatline with investors on the lookout for economic data set to be released during the day, as well as news relating to the United States-China trade war. Meanwhile, Airbus SE reported firing 16 employees accused of internal spying.

The FTSE 100 and the CAC 40 were both virtually unchanged at the opening bell. In London, Centrica plc grew 1.50%, while ArcelorMittal S.A. rose 0.93% in Paris. The DAX gained 22%, with E.ON SE rising 1.46%.

The euro traded flat against the dollar at 8:59 am CET, to sell for $1.10166. At the same time, the pound fell 0.15% to $1.29153.
