Chris Beauchamp’s insight
Key events this week include Chinese PMIs and the monthly US ADP and NFP job reports. An OPEC meeting will also be worth monitoring for any potential impact on the oil price. It is a sparse earnings calendar overall, and with the new Covid variant from South Africa causing major concern it may be that all other data points are pushed into the background as markets attempt to price in the potential for a widespread return of restrictions and a likely hit to economic growth.

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.
