Chris Beauchamp's insight
Rate decisions from the central banks of Australia, Canada and the eurozone dominate the week, with the last of these perhaps the most interesting as investors watch the continued tightening of policy by central banks with rising concern. Outside of this it is a lighter week, though purchasing managers indexes (PMIs) from the US and China are still worth watching. In the UK corporate updates from housebuilder Barratt and retailer JD Sports, plus one from equipment hire firm Ashtead, are highlights for the week.
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.
