Week commencing 26 September

Chris Beauchamp's insight

It is a quieter macro week after the central bank-filled week that went before it. The German IFO index and US durable goods orders are the main events to look for. Corporate news is quieter, although UK investors will focus on updates from Next and BooHoo.

Dividends are applied after the close of the previous day’s session for each market.

The table below shows the days in which the adjustment is applied, not the ex-dividend days.
