Week commencing 1 August

Josh Mahony’s insight

The action keeps on coming, with the recent central bank focus shifting towards employment data as the US brings the latest jobs report. With the US having entered a technical recession, traders will be watching closely for further weakness to impact Federal Reserve (Fed) plans. Also keep an eye out for jobs data from New Zealand and Canada.

From an earnings perspective, the UK brings data from the likes of HSBC, BP, and Rolls-Royce. In the US, Airbnb, Uber, and Moderna are highlights within another busy period for US stocks.
