Week commencing 29 August
Chris Beauchamp's insight
The week begins quietly with a UK bank holiday, though markets will no doubt still be digesting the Jackson Hole comments from Jerome Powell and other key central bankers. But the week also sees the release of US job numbers for August, plus the return of the ADP private payroll report.
Other key data includes quarterly Canadian Gross Domestic Product, and Purchasing managers index's from China. Corporate news is almost non-existent, leaving the focus for markets squarely on macro factors like growth and inflation.
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.
