Next Week

July 26, 2013

Central bank policy meetings are scheduled in the United States, Euroland, U.K., Czech Republic, Israel, and India.  The U.S. and ECB meetings will be followed by press conferences.

Swiss markets will be closed Thursday for a National holiday.

Manufacturing purchasing manager surveys will be published for many economies, including the United States, Euroland, Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Norway, Switzerland, China, Australian, Mexico, Brazil, Poland, Hungary, Ireland, Greece, Canada, the Netherlands, and Sweden.

Japan reports retail sales, labor statistics, auto sales and production, industrial output, labor cash earnings, real household spending, housing starts, and construction orders.

Some other Asian data releases next week will be Thai, South Korean, and Indonesian consumer prices, Singaporean and Malaysian producer prices, Thai and Indonesian trade balances, and Hong Kong retail sales.

Scheduled U.S. releases are the Case Shiller house price index, factory orders, the Dallas Fed manufacturing index, pending home sales, the Chicago and Milwaukee PMIs, the NAPM index, GDP, consumer confidence, auto sales, the ADP estimate of private employment, the employment cost index and the Labor Department jobs reports.  Weekly checks of mortgage applications, chain store sales, consumer comfort, energy inventories, and jobless insurance claims are also to be watched.

From the euro area, investors will learn the latest data covering business sentiment, consumer prices, producer prices, and unemployment.  There are also to be many national releases from the bloc such as German retail sales, consumer confidence and labor statistics, Italy’s CPI, PPI and wage indices, Spanish retail sales and GDP, French consumer spending, Greek and Irish retail sales, and Belgian and Cypriot consumer prices.

In Britain, the Halifax house price index, shop prices, M4 money and consumer confidence will be released.  Swedish retail sales and GDP are due, and so is Switzerland’s index of leading economic indicators.

Canada releases GDP and PPI data, while Brazil reports industrial production and the trade balance.

Australian and New Zealand building permits are due, and so are Turkish and South African trade numbers.
