European markets seen opening higher
Powell testifies in Congress
European stock markets are expected to launch today's trading slightly higher. Fed Chair Powell heads to Congress for the first day of his semi-annual testimony. Members of the US Senate Banking Committee are likely to pressure him on his opinion and view on US fiscal stimulus during Q&A session.
