The euro strengthened against the dollar ahead of U.S. inflation data due on Wednesday, a report that may offer further clues on the pace of interest rate hikes in the U.S.

Copper smelter Aurubis tumbled nearly 4 percent on reports that it is in advanced talks to sell its flat rolled products unit to Wieland-Werke AG.

Travel and tourism company TUI rallied 4 percent after the company narrowed its first-quarter loss and affirmed its FY18 outlook.
