Week commencing 7th Aug.

Chris Beauchamp's insight

Things finally quieten down this week after the frenetic pace of the past two weeks. US consumer price index (CPI) will be the key event to watch, as price rises continue to moderate from the heady pace of earlier in the year. UK gross domestic product (GDP) for quarter 2 (Q2) will also provide some movement for sterling. On the earnings front, TUI AG (LSE), Persimmon PLC, Antofagasta PLC and Walt Disney Co (All Sessions) are major names to watch.
