Week ahead: Bank of England, US jobs report in focus

Fri, 27th Oct 2017 09:03


(ShareCast News) - All eyes will be on the Bank of England in the coming week, with financial markets having nearly priced-in a first 25 basis point hike in Bank Rate by the Monetary Policy Committee.



Straddling the next MPC decision and quarterly Inflation Report, the latest manufacturing and service sector purchasing managers' indices for October from Markit IHS are also due out, on Wednesday and Friday, respectively.

Nonetheless, traders will also be keeping a very close eye on the events unfolding in Spain and Catalonia, especially on any possibility for a 'last-minute' deal between officials in the central government and the regional authorities.

Stateside, and perhaps impacting on the market reaction to the BoE's deliberations, the latest US jobs data is set for release at the end of the week, on Friday.

Significantly, it will come close on the heels of the latest policy meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee, on Wednesday.

Although policymakers at the US central bank are not expected to announce any changes, as always investors will be closely watching the statement issued after their meeting for any clues as to how their thinking may be evolving, especially given the White House's apparent progress on the tax reform front.

Over in the Eurozone, the most eagerly-awaited data will be the latest CPI releases for October out of Germany, on Monday, and from France and Italy on Wednesday.

To take note of as well, rate-setters at the Bank of Japan are also due to meet, on Tuesday.
