Week ahead: Parliament to vote on EU Withdrawal bill

(Sharecast News) - Markets' attention will be squarely on the vote in Parliament on the Prime Minister's proposed withdrawal plan and given the very high probability that it will be summarily dismissed by MPs, on Theresa May's reaction.
Many observers have penciled-in 21 January as the deadline for Theresa May to cobble together an alternative or have Parliament take the lead.

The following day, the Office of National Statistics will publish its first estimate for the December CPI, followed by the latest monthly retail sales data at the end of the week.

Next in terms of the potential market impact may be the latest economic data out of China, with readings on the Asian giant's trade with the rest of the world due out on Monday and money supply data expected on Tuesday.

Stateside, the spotlight will continue to shine on the the various speeches from the remainder of the US central bank's regional presidents and board members who have not yet updated the public on their policy views.

Investors will also be keeping an eye out for figures on US factory gate prices covering the month of December on Tuesday, as well as for a reading on consumer confidence, on Friday.

The Philly Fed index for January, which is due out on Thursday, will also be closely followed.

In the background meanwhile, barring surprises over the weekend, investors will continue to watch for a possible resolution of the partial federal government shutdown which is increasingly weighing on sentiment - as well as delaying the release of key government reports on the economy.

In that regard, among the latest victims of the policy paralysis on Capitol Hill may be the monthly US retail sales report, which at the time of writing was scheduled for Wednesday.
