Chris Beauchamp's insight

US durable goods orders, China purchasing managers index (PMI) figures and inflation data in France, Germany and the eurozone are the key economic figures to watch out for this week. On the corporate front, earnings from UK housebuilders, Ocado and Just Eat Takeaway.com will be the major names to monitor.
