Key Events In The Coming Week

Today US activity will be very light given the Columbus Day holiday. As DB summarizes, we have a relatively quiet day for data watchers today but the calendar will pick up tomorrow and beyond with a big focus on inflation numbers amongst other things. Indeed tomorrow will see the release of Germany’s ZEW survey alongside CPI prints from the UK, France and Spain. Wednesday’s data highlights will include the US retail sales for September, the Fed’s Beige Book, CPI readings from China and Germany, US PPI, and the NY Fed Empire State survey. Draghi will speak twice on Wednesday which could also be a source for headlines. On Thursday, we will get Industrial Production stats and the Philly Fed Survey from the US on top of the usual weekly jobless claims. European CPI will also be released on Wednesday. We have the first reading of October’s UofM Consumer Sentiment on Friday along with US building permits/housing starts. Yellen’s speech at the Boston Fed Conference on Friday (entitled “Inequality of Economic Opportunity”) will also be closely followed.

Away from the macro events this week, it will also be a busy week for company earnings. We have over 50 S&P 500 companies lined up for quarterly results (nearly a fifth of the index’s market cap). JPMorgan and Citigroup will kick things off for US banks tomorrow followed by BofA on Wednesday, Goldman Sachs on Thursday, and Morgan Stanley on Friday. Away from Financials, we have the likes of Intel, Johnson & Johnson, Google, and GE also reporting this week.
