TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Asian shares staged a rebound on Friday to set course for their first gains in two weeks, with Shanghai managing a modest recovery from a rout that saw its shares crumble to near 4 year lows.
The strong gains soothed investor sentiment, which was hit after a major volatility index, seen as Wall Street’s fear gauge, rose to an eight-month high.
European shares are seen following suit, with spreadbetters expecting London’s FTSE (FTSE) to open up 0.4 percent, and Frankfurt’s DAX (GDAXI) and Paris’ CAC (FCHI) 1.0 percent.
