European stocks fall slightly with spotlight on economic data, earnings – CNBC
LONDON — European stocks fell slightly on Friday morning, with investors’ attention turning to inflation and economic growth data, as well as corporate earnings.
Wall Street will also keep a close eye on personal income and spending data, set for release at 8:30 a.m. ET Friday morning. That data could provide investors, and the Federal Reserve, with a valuable look at how quickly prices are rising across the U.S. economy as it recovers from the Covid-19 pandemic.
