Week commencing 28th Aug.

 

Axel Rudolph's insight

Following last week’s Jackson Hole symposium with its central bank guidance on monetary policy, this week’s focus will be on European and US inflation, consumer confidence and unemployment data. China and US manufacturing purchasing managers index (PMIs) and Japan/German retail sales will also be of interest to market participants. Although earnings season is winding down, earnings by Best Buy, Broadcom, Dell, HP and UBS may add some volatility to the mix.
