Week ahead: BoE, global manufacturing in focus

(Sharecast News) - The last full week of trading in 2019 will see a raft of economic indicators released in all the main geographies.
On home turf, readings on monthly employment, consumer prices, retail sales and public sector net borrowing will be released starting from Monday, followed by a Monetary Policy Committee's meeting come Thursday.

Across the Channel, also on Monday, the focus will be on preliminary readings for manufacturing and services sector activity in December, alongside similar survey readings for the UK.

The start of the week will also see a barrage of releases for retail sales, industrial production and fixed asset investment published in the People's Republic of China.

And on Friday, rate-setters in China are set to meet to decide on monetary policy.

Stateside, Thursday will bring with it the Philly Fed's regional manufacturing sector index for December, followed by the University of Michigan's consumer confidence for that same month on the next day.
