Events to Look Out For Next Week

Welcome to our weekly agenda, our briefing of all the key financial events globally.

What a week!  It was a gigantic week with Dollar index ready to set its biggest 2-day fall since 2009, as concerns eased that overly aggressive Fed action will hit global growth and curb demand. Rate hike expectations have been trimmed in the wake of lower than anticipated US inflation data. On top of this China has eased Covid-quarantine rules, which has further boosted confidence in the global demand outlook. But will the sentiment remain next week?

Meanwhile the UK Autumn Statement and inflation are in the spotlight of next week’s agenda.
