Week commencing 21st Aug.

 

Chris Beauchamp's insight

This week’s Jackson Hole meeting will see central bankers from around the globe meet to discuss the outlook for the global economy. Flash Purchasing Managers' Index (PMIs) will be the key event earlier in the week, along with the German IFO report. Earnings season is winding down, but Nvidia’s earnings will be in focus given the excitement around the impact of AI.
