Week ahead: German elections in focus

Fri, 22nd Sep 2017 12:40


(ShareCast News) - Focus will shift over the coming week to the results of the German elections, at the weekend, which analysts said might have important implications for the process of European integration, the country's stance towards the periphery and potential nominations to key European and German institutions.





There appeared to be little doubt that Chancellor Angela Merkel would again come out on top; however, there were doubts about which would be the CDU/CSU's partner in what was still expected to be a coalition government.

For example, according to UBS potential coalition partners might ask for the country's top finance post, resulting in the exit of Wolfgang Schaeuble. But who would his substitute be? A 'harder' FDP candidate or a 'softer' SPD or Green one?

The flow of US data was also expected to pick-up, with durable orders figures for August on Wednesday and personal income and spending data on Friday expected to take the spotlight.

Back in the euro area, investors would be watching the IFO institute's German business confidence gauge for September, on Monday, followed by the latest euro area money supply figures for August on Wednesday.

A raft of Japanese data was also due at the end of the week, including reports on the unemployment rate, consumer prices, retail sales, industrial production and housing starts.

In terms of UK data, the most important releases would be GfK's consumer confidence confidence survey for September and consumer credit data and mortgage figures for August, both on Friday.
