Week commencing 13 September

Joshua Mahony’s insight

A busy week on the economic front, with US and UK inflation providing key updates for central bankers to consider. Meanwhile, jobs will also be a key concern, as UK and Australia prepare to release their latest employment number.

The corporate calendar looks to be slowing down, with just a handful of names to consider. In the UK, the likes of Associated British Foods, Ocado, Redrow, and Restaurant provide a relatively wide-ranging view across the economy. Meanwhile, Oracle provide the only notable release in the US. Video

Dividends are applied after the close of the previous day’s session for each market. So, for example, the FTSE 100 goes ex-dividend on a Thursday, but the adjustment is applied at the close of the previous day, e.g. Wednesday. The table below shows the days in which the adjustment is applied, not the ex-dividend days.
