Shares in Europe got off to a quiet start on Monday with traders keeping the STOXX 600 around Friday's record peaks, reluctant to take big bets before this week's U.S. CPI data.

The region-wide index .STOXX was up 0.1% and sectoral moves were muted too. Aerospace and defence stocks .SXPARO stood out with a drop of 1%. BAE Systems BAES.L fell 2% from a record high after a BofA downgraded the British defence group to neutral following an over 20% surge this year.

The STOXX has risen 8.8% so far this year.
