No major economic data is due out on Monday.

Investors will likely be mulling over the latest jobs number released Friday. The Labor Department announced that after two strong months of U.S. job growth, payrolls for July came in below market expectations, with total nonfarm payrolls rising by 157,000, below the 190,000 expected by economists polled by Reuters.

Concerns over a trade dispute between the U.S. and China continue to intensify. Late last week, China said it was ready to retaliate with tariffs of around $60 billion on U.S. goods, amid a mounting trade war. Beijing added that import taxes would be within the range of 5 percent to 25 percent in rates, with many of the goods listed linked to agriculture.

The U.S. administration revealed last Wednesday that President Donald Trump had spoken with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and asked him to consider increasing the proposed levies on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods up to 25 percent, from 10 percent.

Markets in Asia and Europe came under pressure on Monday morning, as investors awaited more news on the retaliatory tariffs.
