Brexit will be back on the agenda this week when envoys from the post-Brexit European Union member states meet to discuss the current negotiations with the UK.

Also on Wednesday the European Central Bank (ECB) Banking Supervision will host its annual press conference in Frankfurt, while the European Commission will publish its economic forecasts.

ECB president Mario Draghi is also due to present his annual report to the European Parliament. Today the Services PMI numbers for Europe are released.

Thursday will see the ECB publish its economic bulletin, while Yves Mersch, a board member of the ECB, is due to speak in London about cryptocurrencies.

Elsewhere, Elon Musk's SpaceX will launch its Falcon Heavy Rocket tomorrow. Musk plans to load the rocket with a red Tesla Roadster and David Bowie's 'Space Oddity' playing on repeat.

The US government's funding will again run out on Thursday unless a deal is done. BP, Toyota, Twitter and Tesla have results this week.
