Chris Beauchamp's insight
This week is dominated by central bank meetings, namely the Bank of Japan (BoJ), Federal Reserve (Fed), and the Bank of England (BoE). Canadian, UK, and Japanese consumer price index (CPI) will also be important events to monitor, as inflation and the potential for a resurgence in price growth, continue to dominate financial market newsflow, particularly in the wake of the increase in CPI and producer price index (PPI) in the US last month. Updates are expected from UK firms Next, ASOS, and Galliford Try.
FTSE 100: None
Dividends are applied after the close of the previous day’s session for each market. So, for example, the FTSE 100 goes ex-dividend on a Thursday, but the adjustment is applied at the close of the previous day, e.g. Wednesday. The table below shows the days in which the adjustment is applied, not the ex-dividend days.
