Next Week

September 9, 2011

Central bank meetings are scheduled next week in Switzerland, India, and New Zealand.  The Bank of Japan releases meeting minutes.

The U.S. will be releasing many potentially market-moving data, notably retail sales, industrial production, the Empire State and Philly Fed manufacturing indices, the U. Michigan preliminary consumer sentiment gauge for early September, the small business sentiment index (NFIB), the IBD/TIPP optimism barometer, the August Federal budget figures, business inventories, import prices, producer prices, consumer prices, the second-quarter current account, and the Treasury compilation of monthly international capital flows.  Weekly figures for jobless claims, consumer confidence, chain store sales, energy inventories, and mortgage applications also will be combed by investors.

Britain will report labor statistics, retail sales, the trade deficit, consumer prices, and house price indices compiled by the Department of Local Communities and Government  and the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors.  Sweden and Denmark report consumer prices, while Denmark and Switzerland announce PPI data.

In Euroland, industrial production, the current account, the trade balance, quarterly unemployment, and final consumer prices will be arriving.  Italy, France, Portugal, Greece, Finland, and Spain will be releasing price data of one sort or another.  Further to the east, Poland, Hungary and Romania are reporting consumer prices, and the Czech PPI is due.

Canada has three interesting releases: quarterly capacity usage and the monthly survey of manufacturers and compilation of net securities transactions.  Mexican industrial production is due, as are Argentina’s GDP, CPI and PPI figures.

Japan has a limited data calendar that includes corporate goods prices, the tertiary index, and revised industrial production with capacity usage.  Chinese trade figures plus money and lending growth are awaited.  South Korea also releases trades, while India and Hong Kong are set to announce industrial production.  Singapore retail sales are due, and so are WPI reports from India and Hong Kong.

Australia has a number of releases in the coming week, including housing starts and permits, auto sales, expected inflation, and the trade balance.  Turkey will be releasing GDP, unemployment and the current account, and South Africa also is reporting its current account.
