FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - European markets are going through gains on Tuesday, following a negative session on Monday, although volumes are rather low, as investors await key U.S. events later this week.
Eurostoxx 50 Index rises 0.9% while the German DAX Index adds 1.1% and the French CAC Index rises 0.9%. In the UK, the FTSE Index trades 0.9% up.
In the absence of key macroeconomic data today, markets await for the U.S. Federal reserve monetary policy meeting, which opens today to release its statement on Wednesday, and Thursday's G20 meeting, whose assessments about the economic outlook will be closely watched.
