Good morning,

Markets are called to open flat this morning. This is what's happening today:

European stock-index futures advanced, indicating equities may snap two days of losses, as China’s industrial output growth unexpectedly accelerated. U.S. index futures and Asian shares were little changed.

Futures on the Euro Stoxx 50 Index expiring in December climbed 0.3 percent to 3,038 at 7:04 a.m. in London. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index has risen for five straight weeks as the European Central Bank unexpectedly lowered its key interest rate and the Federal Reserve maintained bond purchases. Contracts on the U.K.’s FTSE 100 Index added 0.5 percent today. Standard & Poor’s 500 Index futures lost less than 0.1 percent, while the MSCI Asia Pacific Index rose 0.2 percent.
