The index is being driven by gains in the shares of Adidas AG, Luthansa AG, BMW ST, Daimler AG and Infineon AG. On the other hand, shares in Fresenius SE and Thyssenkrupp AG have posted minor losses.

Meanwhile, there is more economic data due today. Service sector purchasing managers’ indices will be published across the euro zone . A weaker reading, though negative , may be considered positive by the markets today since it would warrant more action from the ECB.
