Glass half full or half empty?

A look at the day ahead in European and global markets from Anshuman Daga

That is keeping markets on edge.

As central banks around the world point to rising prices remaining their enemy No. 1, how the impact of higher borrowing costs affects the chances of a "soft landing" for economies still tops the agenda of investors.

Surging British inflation has investors worrying about the damage that rate hikes will do to growth, leaving sterling GBP=D3 to languish.

At least recession fears have put a lid on oil prices, if there were to be some sort of silver lining.

The dollar remained on the front foot and Asian equities retreated further on Thursday, uninspired by Wall Street's attempts to pare losses after the Fed minutes.

Today, Norway's central bank is expected to raise its benchmark interest rate by 50 basis points, more than it signalled in June, following a surge in consumer prices.

Key developments that could influence markets on Thursday:

Economic data: July euro zone CPI, U.S. initial jobless claims, Philly Fed business index

Kansas City and Minneapolis Fed presidents Esther George and Neel Kashkari speak

U.S. earnings: Applied Materials, Kohl's
