Week commencing 20 September

Chris Beauchamp’s insight

Fed, BoE and BoJ meetings dominate the week, with their discussion on policy likely to influence market volatility. Meanwhile, it is flash PMI week, providing further insight on the global economy. Also of note is the monthly German IFO data. On the corporate front, updates from Kingfisher, TUI and Royal Mail in the UK, and FedEx and Nike in the US, will be of interest.

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.
