Chris Beauchamp’s insight
A shortened week for the US due to the Independence Day holiday sees non-farm payrolls published a day early coinciding with the trade balance and weekly jobless claims figures.
Other key events of note include PMIs from China and first quarter figures from Sainsbury’s.
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.
