Week commencing 10 April

Chris Beauchamp's insight

This week begins quietly, but with US and China consumer price index (CPI) on the list for the week, plus the beginning of earnings season, things will heat up quite quickly. The latest round of US earnings promises to dominate the second half of April and the beginning of May, and with banks reporting first as usual markets will want to see what effects the March banking crisis has had on the sector.
