Week commencing 22 November

Chris Beauchamp’s insight

Flash PMIs from around the globe dominate the week in terms of economic data, along with US durable goods orders and the German IFO index. The second half of the week is likely to be quieter thanks to the US Thanksgiving holiday. Key corporate names to watch this week include Zoom, HP and Gap in the US, and Compass and AO World in the UK.

Dividends are applied after the close of the previous day’s session for each market.
