Week ahead: Spotlight on Hammond

Sun, 19th Nov 2017 18:57


(ShareCast News) - In the UK, the focus will be on the Chancellor's Budget on Wednesday, with fresh data on public sector net borrowing on Tuesday possibly helping to set the tone for his announcements.

Globally, on the other hand, the spotlight will be on the ongoing government coalition talks in Germany, as Chancellor Merkel tries to thrash out a stable arrangement.

Yet barring unexpected surprises, price moves in stockmarkets are likely to be contained given the that it's a holiday-shortened trading week in the States on account of Thanksgiving Day.

That means that many US-based traders will inevitably be away from their desks throughout the week.

Even so, investors will also keep a close eye on US retailers' updates on their sales performance on 'Black Friday', which are considered to be useful when it comes to gauging consumer intentions in the lead up to the critical Christmas spending season.

Markets will also be keeping an eye on speeches from European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi, on Monday, and Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen on Tuesday.

In terms of data, the main release in the States will be Wednesday's reading on durable goods orders for October.

Back in Europe, on Friday the German IFO institute will release its monthly survey of business confidence conditions in the euro area's largest economy.

Elsewhere, monetary policy decisions are expected in Hungary (Tuesday), South Africa (Thursday) and Colombia (Friday).

Also out during the week will be the minutes of the RBA (Tuesday), ECB (Thursday) and Fed's (Wednesday) latest policy meetings.
