Meanwhile, EU's Bailly warns there are potential risk factors to be aware of, but adds that the position on Greece nor the Euro has changed.

1055 GMT: Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman pointing out that although last Friday's US jobs data was good, it should not be an excuse for the powers that be to take their foot off the gas with regards to supporting economic growth.

Stay tuned for German industrial production.

0945 GMT: Greece staying in the news as markets remain pretty quiet for the most part. The German deputy finance minister has rejected accusation that Germany and France are trying to push Greece from the Eurozone, while EU's Juncker added some melodrama saying that "the Euro will survive us all."

0730 GMT:EU's Juncker coming on the wires saying that Greece cannot be forced out of the Euro, and reiterating that the EU has no doubt Greece will fulfill its obligations. Juncker added that even if Greece exited the Euro, other countrues would still have to invest "unimaginable sums" which would be at least as expensive as the aid up to now.

0630 GMT:Aussie is the big news this morning in Europe, with the RBA surprising the market by keeping rates steady at 4.25% instead of lowering it as had been expected.
