Week commencing 6 December

Chris Beauchamp’s insight

This week sees Chinese and US CPI, along with the German ZEW index and rate decisions from the RBA and Bank of Canada. Much of the focus remains on the rise in prices globally, but also on the potential spread of the Omicrom variant. Corporate data includes the end of US earnings season, including Oracle, and a trading statement in the UK from Rolls Royce.

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.
