There may not be much in the way of fundamental news today but there is plenty to come with the virus and US election (stimulus anyone?) added to the mix. Plus earnings will be in full swing with the tech giants likely to grab the attention for most of the week with Microsoft reporting tomorrow. If you've looked at investing.com you will have seen the headline about SAP - Germany's most valuable company which has slashed its profit forecasts. And as the headline says 'shocks a complacent tech narrative'. A strong & rising euro will not be good for the stock either.
