The Week Ahead

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

 
 

Week commencing 23 August

Chris Beauchamp's insight

Flash PMIs from around the globe will provide some insight into the global economy, but the main event will be the Jackson Hole Economic Symposium, at which the Fed is expected to provide more details of its tapering outlook. Corporate data is mostly quiet, with little in the way of big name earnings, as might be expected for the final full week of August. Video

Dividends

FTSE 100: Auto Trader, Land Securities, St James’s Place, Diageo, Mondi, Aviva

FTSE 250: Ultra Electronics, HICL Infrastructure, Capital & Counties, RHI Magnesita, Drax, 4Imprint, Plus500

 

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.
