While the RBA is set to leave rates unchanged, any discussion around potential policy will be of note for AUD pairs. It is a sparse earnings calendar this week, but things will become busier from next week onwards as the next US earnings season gets underway. FTSE traders should be aware of the sizeable slab of 100 and 250 members going ex-dividend this week.

Earnings are quiet, but Bellway in the UK provides a focus for housebuilders, while H&M’s first quarter update will put the spotlight on retailers in Europe.
