Chris Beauchamp's insight
This week sees central bank decisions from Australia and Canada, along with the US ISM non-mfg PMI and the Chinese Caixin services purchasing managers index (PMI). US earnings season is winding down, while in the UK Ashtead, British American Tobacco and Frasers Group are worth watching on the equity front.
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.
|EU Stocks 50||3.5|
