The Week Ahead

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

 

Week commencing 6 September

Chris Beauchamp’s insight

The week begins quietly with US markets closed for Labor Day, but with an ECB meeting on the calendar European assets will be in focus. An RBA rate decision and China data mean APAC markets will be ones to watch as well. Corporate news is quiet, but Morrisons provides a first-half update, as it prepares for its takeover by a US private equity firm. Video
