Chris Beauchamp's insight

Sterling watchers will have to content with UK employment, consumer price index (CPI) and retail sales figures, while the German ZEW will provide some potential for volatility in eurozone assets. Key earnings this week include Vodafone, Imperial Brands and Walmart.

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.
