Week commencing 27 March

Chris Beauchamp's insight

Markets had thought that the banking crisis was finished this week, but with Deutsche Bank under fresh pressure it looks like more volatility is on the way. While we have some key data this week such as the German IFO index and the US personal consumption expenditure (PCE) price index, trading is likely to be driven by newsflow from the financial sector in Europe and the US.

FTSE 250: Moneysupermarket.com

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.
