1. Trump talks trade: President Donald Trump is set to meet with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Wednesday.

The two leaders "will focus on improving transatlantic trade and forging a stronger economic partnership," the White House said.

The United States has already put tariffs on aluminum and steel imports from the European Union, and now Trump is threatening to hike tariffs on cars made in Europe to 20%. EU officials hope the trip will help defuse the tension.

The United States and European Union have the world's largest bilateral trading relationship, worth over $1.1 trillion a year.

2. Facebook earnings: Facebook will report its second quarter results after the bell, providing the clearest glimpse yet into how the Cambridge Analytica data debacle impacted user growth and ad sales.

Facebook has endured grillings from lawmakers on both sides of the Atlantic and faces scrutiny from several federal agencies in the United States.

Yet the company continues adding users across its portfolio of apps and remains a top destination for advertisers. Its stock is trading at a record high.

3. Fiat Chrysler reports: The automaker Fiat Chrysler will report results before the opening bell.

It's a chance for investors to ask questions following the sudden resignation of Sergio Marchionne on Saturday. The longtime CEO suffered complications from surgery.

His replacement is the former boss of the automaker's Ram and Jeep brands, Mike Manley.

The abrupt leadership change comes less than two months after Marchionne outlined plans to double the carmaker's profits by 2022, find a way into China and launch dozens of new vehicles including electrics and crossovers.

Fiat Chrysler shares opened nearly 1% lower in Milan.

4. Global market overview: US stock futures were flat.

European markets opened mostly lower, following a mixed session in Asia.

The Dow Jones industrial average closed up 0.8% on Tuesday, while the S&P 500 added 0.5%. The Nasdaq was flat. Shares in Google owner Alphabet closed 4% higher, hitting a new record high.

The US Census Bureau will release its new home sales report for June at 10 a.m. ET. A report on US crude inventories will be published at 10:30 a.m. ET.

Deutsche Bank reported pretax profit of -711 million ($831 million) for the second quarter. That's 13% lower than the same quarter last year.

Shares in the bank were flat. CEO Christian Sewing said the bank's restructuring plan was on track after three consecutive years of losses. Deutsche has shed 2,100 jobs since the start of the year.
