According to calculations by banks and brokerage houses, the DAX will start trading lower on Tuesday.

Europe's stock markets returned to their recovery path at the start of the week. The leading German index rose 0.9 percent to 18,326 points on Monday. It thus overcame the high from the previous week and consolidated the foundations of its recovery, commented Konstantin Oldenburger from CMC Markets.

Investors continue to be driven by the customs dispute between the European Union and China. Stock market participants are focusing in particular on the prospect of talks on the planned European import tariffs for Chinese electric cars. The signs of easing caused relief on Monday and boosted German car manufacturers.

On the economic side, the data highlight is not due until Friday: Investors are eagerly awaiting the PCE price index, which is the US Federal Reserve's preferred measure of inflation. Investors are hoping that the US inflation data will provide an indication of the timing of the Fed's first interest rate cut. Ahead of this, survey data on US consumer sentiment is due later in the day.
