2. The U.K.'s Serious Fraud Office said Tuesday that it has charged four former executives of Barclays plc (BCS) , including CEO John Varley, in a probed linked to the bank's capital raising at the height of the global financial crisis in 2008
3. BT Group Plc (BT) shares are likely to be active at the start of trading Tuesday after France's Orange SA (ORAN) said late last night that it has dumped around half of its stake in the U.K. telecoms incumbent
4. Global oil markets continue to struggle, despite the solid demand backdrop, with prices holding at 7-month lows ahead of estimates of U.S. commercial crude stocks later in the session
