The Week Ahead

Read about upcoming market-moving events and plan your trading week

 

Week commencing 11 March

Chris Beauchamp's insight

US consumer price index (CPI) data dominates the week, as investors await the latest set of price figures for the US economy and assess its impact on the Federal Reserve bank's (Fed) moves in coming meetings. UK employment data is also worth watching, along with full-year figures from housebuilder Persimmon. Please note: US Daylight Savings Time begins 10 March, so all US data is one hour earlier for UK traders.

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.
