Traders will focus on coronavirus numbers which have recently climbed in Asia and suggests that countries may have to maintain lockdown strict lockdown measures.
The FTSE closed with a marginal gain of 4 points at 5939 on Monday as the index settled off its intra-day high at 6000.

Failure to hold above 5890 would lead FTSE towards the lower levels of support at 5840 and 5800.
