Week ahead: UK data, ECB rate meeting in focus

Fri, 15th Jul 2016 15:04


(ShareCast News) - A barrage of economic data scheduled for release over the coming week will help inform markets and policymakers about the state of the UK economy in the immediate run-up to the referendum vote.

Particularly informative will be the performance of the labour market in May and June. Did companies begin to batten down the hatches on hiring ahead of the vote?

Of particular interest, preliminary readings on UK manufacturing and services for the month of July will provide one of the first insights into the aftermath of the vote.

They will come alongside readings on consumer prices for the month of June on Tuesday and public finances on Thursday.

Acting as a backdrop, rate-setters at the European Central Bank are set to meet on Thursday, with the consensus not expecting any change in the ECB's current policy settings.





"Brexit, and the negative impact it may have on euro area growth, opens the possibility of more easing from the ECB this year, but we do not expect that to come at this meeting. It is likely the ECB will take a similar approach to the Bank of England in waiting to see more data before considering whether to act. Clear evidence of a slowdown in growth or broadbased financial stress in the coming months would raise the probability of easing in September, possibly in the form of further credit easing.

"At this meeting the ECB may well give some indication of how they plan to address upcoming shortage of bonds to purchase. We may also get some comments on the recent implementation of TLTRO II and CSPP," economists at Credit Suisse said in a research note sent to clients.

The results of the latest ECB bank lending survey, on Tuesday, are also set for release.

US data on the housing sector are also due to be published during the week, on Tuesday and Thursday.

Australia's monetary authority will meet on Tuesday to decide on rates.
