You can share your thoughts Joice Alves ( and Julien Ponthus ( in London and Stefano Rebaudo ( in Milan. WHEN THE TECH HEAVEN SHUTS DOWN... (1022 GMT) European stocks were hit by a selloff in tech stocks after California reimposed lockdown restrictions following a surge of coronavirus cases.*:nL2N2EK2A7 Europe's technology sector .SX8P was disproportionately impacted by the reimposition of restriction measures in the "tech-haven" U.S. state, says Spreadex analyst Connor Campbell. "California is specifically a tech haven, so this is going to have a disproportionate effect on tech stocks," Campbell says. "That is the home of American tech, if that spreads further, if lockdown restrictions get tighter in California than this will eventually get a knock-on effect on those big tech firms." Tracking overnight declines in U.S. tech companies, shares in SAP SAPG.DE , ASML ASML.AS , Prosus PSX.AS and Infineon Technologies IFXGn.DE fell about 4-5%, with Europe's tech index declining around 3-4%.

(Stefano Rebaudo) ***** ON THE RADAR: SWATCH, ROCHE, HELLOFRESH, OCADO (0645 GMT) In a data-heavy morning, futures are pointing to a start of the day in the red as a risk-off session is on track following new coronavirus worries and growing tensions between the U.S. and China. On the corporate front, the earnings season is getting started. Shares in Swatch Group UHR.S are down 2.3% in premarket trade after a net loss in H1 but with expectations of improving sales and profits in the second half.*:nFWN2EL035 Hellofresh HFGG.DE stocks are up 5.7% in early trade after results.*:nASN000992 British online supermarket Ocado OCDO.L said retail revenue soared 27% year-on-year in its first half to May 31.*:nASN00099P Norwegian oil firm Aker BP AKEBP.OL swung to a pretax profit in the second quarter on record output and a partial reversal of impairments from the previous quarter.*:nL5N2EK4OZ Roche ROG.S will pay up to $1.7 billion to Blueprint Medicines to help develop and commercialise a new treatment for people with so-called RET-altered cancers that have mutations that drive tumour growth.
