Week ahead: US data, global trade tensions in focus

Fri, 24th May 2019 14:38


(Sharecast News) - The market calendar over the coming week will be back-end weighted with key data releases scheduled both in the States and in China.

In the former, Federal Reserve vice-chairman is due to deliver a speech on Thursday, followed by a raft of data on the next day, including on personal income and spending, factory sector activity in the Great Lakes area and a final reading on the University of Michigan's consumer confidence index for the month of May.

Meanwhile, in the People's Republic of China, Friday will see the release of the 'official' manufacturing sector Purchasing Managers' Index for the month of May.

US-China trade tensions won't be far from investors' minds either, with analysts at Barclays Research telling clients that they believe a trade deal "will remain out of reach", regardless of whether the two countries' leaders meet at the upcoming G-20 meeting in Osaka, Japan, on 28-29 June.

"Toughening rhetoric on both sides not only makes our standoff scenario (sustained tariffs on $200bn of Chinese import plus retaliation measures) but also a potential escalation scenario (tariffs on all Chinese imports and tit-for-tat retaliation) more likely by the day," they said.

Across the Channel, investors will be scrutinising the results of the elections to the European Parliament, on Sunday.

The key economic reports in the euro area are likely to be consultancy GfK's survey of German consumer confidence and the latest money supply data from the European Central Bank, with both due out on Tuesday.

In the UK, and also on Friday, the Bank of England will release mortgage lending and consumer credit data for April.

On the same day, in Japan, fresh data is expected on unemployment, Tokyo CPI excluding food and industrial production.
