Chris Beauchamp’s insight
US and Chinese CPI dominate the week, as markets fret once again about inflation. The pound will be in focus as the first reading on UK Q1 GDP comes through. Earnings are quieter, although Disney and BT will provide interest for US and UK investors.
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.
