Europe up in premarket with Brexit talks, data in focus

Equities on major European stock markets were higher in premarket trading on Tuesday as investors mainly focused on negotiations between London and Brussels on the two sides post-Brexit trade relations. United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson stands ready to "work hard" to reach an agreement, a Downing Street spokesperson noted, while French State Secretary for Europe and Foreign Affairs Clement Beaune warned that Paris won't support a deal "at any price" to avoid a potential no-deal Brexit scenario.

On the data front, investors await unemployment data from the UK, as well as a statistical report on German inflation that is set to be released before the opening bell.

The DAX in Frankfurt added 0.12% at 7:34 am CET, while the FTSE 100 gained 0.40% at the same time. The CAC 40 was in the green territory as well, climbing 0.14% concurrently. The euro slid 0.10% at 7:36 am CET to change hands for $1.18002.
