Week ahead: UK data, China Communist party Congress in focus

Sun, 15th Oct 2017 17:25


(ShareCast News) - The coming week will see the release of a barrage of economic data on the UK economy, even as investors eye political events in the People's Republic of China and Spain.

In the UK, starting from Tuesday investors will be closely watching a stream of reports including official monthly estimates on consumer prices, the labour market, retail sales and the public finances.

Acting as a backdrop, the 19th Chinese Communist Party Congress kicks off on Wednesday, with analysts interesed in the potential for multiple new faces among the top ranks of China's government, which may provide hints as to the direction the country is headed in over the medium-term.

Commenting on what is likely to come out of those gatherings, analysts at Barclays Research said: "While we expect broad policy continuity, the potential for greater centralisation of power could put the government in a stronger position to push for reforms and developments."

Spain will also be very much in focus, with markets keen to learn if the main Catalan nationalist parties finally choose to come to the negotiating table or to bring matters to a head, instead.

Local reports at the weekend indicated that the first deadline from Madrid, which was set to expire on Monday morning at 0900 BST, may not be heeded, with Catalan president Carles Puigdemont opting instead for an ambiguous statement in which he neither confirms nor denies that he issued a declaration of independence the week before.

Elsewhere, other reports speculated with the possibility of further North Korean missile launches timed to coincide with combined US and South Korean military drills scheduled for throughout the week.

Stateside, the flow of economic data was set to slow, with a few reports on the housing market and manufacturing sector expected to be in focus, alongside a speech from Fed chair Janet Yellen at the end of the week.

Meanwhile, in Europe, on Thursday the European Union's main Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, was scheduled to update EU 27 leaders on the current state of negotiations with the UK.

A raft of Chinese data was also due to be published on Thursday, including on third quarter GDP, fixed asset investment, industrial production and retail sales. CPI and money supply data were also due out earlier in the week.

That same day, central banks in South Korea, Indonesia and Israel are expected to decided on interest rates.
