Week commencing 5 June

Chris Beauchamp's insight

This week sees decisions from the Australian and Canadian central banks, while China purchasing managers index (PMI), trade and inflation data will provide more information on that economy as slowdown fears accelerate. Corporate news is light, although there is a first-half update from Crest Nicholson and trading statements from British American Tobacco and Foxtons.
