Wall Street looked to fall at the open on Monday, as disappointing European and Chinese data hit global market sentiment.
Markit's final euro zone Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) for October came in at 50.6, just below initial estimates of 50.7, indicating weaker-than-expected expansion in the sector.
In addition, China reported over the weekend that its official PMI fell to a five-month low and other data on Monday showed its services sector grew at the slowest pace in nine months.
Investors will also eye PMI data out of the U.S. on Monday. Markit's manufacturing PMI is out at 9:45 a.m. ET, followed by the ISM manufacturing PMI for October at 10 a.m.
In addition, there will be construction spending for September at 10 a.m., as well as total vehicle sales for October. Plus, two U.S. Federal Reserve officials will speak on Monday—Chicago's Charles Evans at 9:30 a.m. and Dallas's Richard Fisher at 12:40 p.m.
On Monday, Publicis announced it would buy Sapient, a U.S. digital advertising specialist, in an all-cash transaction for $25 per share. This values Sapient at $3.7 billion and follows Publicis's failed merger with the U.S.'s Omnicom. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of next year.
In addition, Argentina has accused Dow-listed Procter & Gamble of tax fraud, and has suspended its operations in the country, Reuters reported Monday morning.
