Week commencing 30 August

Chris Beauchamp’s insight

The end of the August holiday period sees the return of more important economic data, including the monthly US job surveys, the ADP and NFP reports. The NFP report is expected to show a slowdown in job growth, but at a still-strong pace, while the ADP report is forecast to show an increase in job creation. Other key data include Chinese PMI figures for August and US ISM PMIs for the same month. Earnings news is still quiet, but UK retailer Superdry and housebuilder Barratt Developments report full-year numbers. Video

Dividends are applied after the close of the previous day’s session for each market.

The table below shows the days in which the adjustment is applied, not the ex-dividend days.
