Week ahead: Focus on Brexit talks, US-China trade

Mon, 4th Mar 2019 14:32


(Sharecast News) - The most important event over the coming week will be the outcome of Attorney General, Geoffrey Cox's discussions with EU negotiators to secure a favourable interpretation regarding the Irish backstop.



If successful, that could pave the way for MPs to support the Prime Minister's withdrawal plans when Parliament votes on 12 March.

Failing that, MPs are expected to push for a delay to the UK's exit date on 29 March. However, according to analysts at Eurasia Group, that might raise the prospect of a Common Market 2.0 or Norway Plus-style agreement being tabled in June.

Faced with such a prospect, many Brexiters may well choose to fall into line now, the think-tank said.

Investors will also be keeping a close eye throughout the week on the ongoing US-China trade talks, with the monthly US non-farm payrolls report for February due for release on Friday.



In the euro area, all eyes will be on the European Central Bank's Governing Council meeting on Thursday.

Most economists don't appear to be expecting the ECB to unveil a fresh set of bank loans, known as TLTROs, at the meeting.

But the sharp drop seen in Barclays's Augmented Credit Impulse indicator over the fourth quarter of 2018 led economists at the investment bank to expect such announcement by no later than the June GC meeting, and potentially earlier.



Further afield, in China, the second session of the 13th National People's Congress will kick-off on Tuesday.

According to economists at Bank of America-Merrill Lynch, there is only a relatively small probability that officials will approve large stimulus measures.

Delegates are also expected to discuss reform initiatives meant to boost growth and efficiency.
