Week ahead: UK data, US-China trade deal in focus

(Sharecast News) - The flow of economic data will pick up considerably in all jurisdictions over the coming week, although the signing of the phase-one trade deal between China and the US may steal the spotlight.
At home, foreign trade data for November are scheduled to be published on Monday, followed by readings on consumer prices and retail sales in December set to follow on Wednesday and Friday, respectively.

Investors will be scrutinising those reports for further signs of weakness which might cement expectations in financial markets for interest rate cuts.

Stateside meanwhile, the heaviest day for releases will be Thursday, with reports due out on import prices and retail sales in December, alongside the results of the Philly Fed's regional manufacturing sector survey for the same month.

The preliminary reading on the University of Michigan's consumer confidence survey is expected on Friday.

In China, data on foreign trade are due out on Tuesday, while readings on quarterly GDP, retail sales and industrial production will come out on Friday.

Finally, in the background, further details on the US-China trade deal will be published on Wednesday, with the signing ceremony expected in the days following that.
