Week commencing 14 February

Chris Beauchamp’s insight

UK data takes centre stage with CPI, employment data and retail sales. In addition, US PPI will also be worth watching. After the latest US CPI figure this week’s Fed minutes might not add anything else, especially given how some regional Fed chiefs have issued statements on the outlook for rates. Earnings season in the US is winding down, but Standard Chartered and Natwest earnings mark the beginning of reporting season for UK banks.
