Week commencing 30 May

Chris Beauchamp’s insight

Now that US earnings season is broadly at an end, aside from HP and Salesforce, the focus for the week moves to US non-farm payrolls on Friday. Chinese PMIs this week are also worth monitoring. The week starts with a US holiday, while it finishes with two UK bank holidays.

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.
