The U.S. economic calendar is light for what will be a holiday-shortened week. U.S. markets will be closed for the Labour Day holiday on Monday and activity could remain subdued as traders return after the long weekend. Figures on producer price inflation get top billing this week, while jobless claims numbers could command more attention than usual after the big miss in Friday’s jobs report. Comments by Federal Reserve officials will also be in focus after the disappointing August employment report. Stock markets are likely to remain supported after the jobs data undermined the argument for near-term tapering. Meanwhile, the European Central Bank is expected to debate whether to scale back stimulus at this week’s meeting and China is to release data on trade and inflation which is expected to underline that the recovery in the world’s number two economy is losing momentum.
The ECB meets on Thursday against a background of calls from several hawkish policymakers to begin slowing its pandemic-era asset-purchase stimulus program given a recent spike in inflation.
Inflation in the euro area has surged to a 10-year high of 3%. The ECB has indicated that any increase in inflation is likely to be temporary, but some hawkish officials have recently diverged from this view.
Markets are starting to react to the potential for more sustained eurozone inflation and reduced stimulus from the ECB.
For the UK, BRC Retail sales figures will be in focus early in the week. With the markets looking to see how the UK economy is faring, the numbers should have more influence than usual.
