Week ahead: BoE, US-China trade talks, Global PMIs in focus

Sun, 28th Apr 2019 18:14


(Sharecast News) - Investors should brace for a week full of big risk events, including policy meetings at the Bank of England and US Federal Reserve, together with the next round of US-China trade talks, all alongside a slew of key economic indicators due out from across all of the world's major economic blocks.

On Thursday, the Monetary Policy Committee is set to meet to decide on rates. The consensus is for no change in policy by a unanimous vote of the MPC's nine members, but there has been some speculation of late that perhaps it most 'hawkish' member, Michael Saunders, might argue for a 25 basis point hike.

At present Bank Rate stands at 0.75%, the size of Bank's asset purchase facility for Gilts at 435bn and the stock of its corporate bond purchase programme at 10bn.

Acting as a backdrop, rate-setters in the US will announce their own decision on rates the night before, even as investors in that jurisdiction wait on the all-important US non-farm payrolls report due out at the end of the week, on Friday.

The day before, on Tuesday, top trade negotiators from the US and China are due to meet in Beijing to kick-off the next round of trade talks between the two countries.

The closely-followed US ISM manufacturing and services sector PMIs are also set for release during the week, on Wednesday and Friday, respectively.

Comparable survey results are due on those same two days in the UK.

In the people's Republic of China, the government compiled factory sector PMI is due out on Tuesday, followed by the typically more closely-followed and market-moving one from Caixin on Thursday.

To take note of, South Korean export figures covering the month of April are scheduled for release in April.

Across the Channel meanwhile, euro area money supply data for March is expected on Tuesday, followed by German unemployment figures for April the next day.
