Week commencing 8 January

Chris Beauchamp's insight

US inflation data and the beginning of US earnings season are the main events this week, and will likely drive resurgent volatility in indices, the dollar and commodity prices. After a slower start to the year, we also begin to see the release of more Christmas trading statements from UK retailers, after Next’s strong trading period in its recent update.

FTSE 250: WH Smith, Foresight Group, AJ Bell, Balanced Commercial Property Trust

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.
