The Week Ahead

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

Week commencing 8 July

Chris Beauchamp's insight

US earnings season begins this week, and will dominate the news for the next few weeks. Banks kick things off as normal, and are in strong form after the gains of the past eight months. US inflation is also on the calendar for the week, while Monday’s empty session will be overshadowed by the results of the second round of voting in France’s parliamentary elections.

Dividends

FTSE 100: Halma

FTSE 250: WHSmith, Oxford Instruments, CMC Markets, Merchants Trust, Supermarket Income REIT

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.
