Friday preview: US data, euro area CPI in focus

(Sharecast News) - The focus at the end of the week will be on a raft of US activity indicators for April and early reading on euro area consumer prices for May.
Among the former will be readings on personal income and spending in April, which are expected to reveal big declines in both.

However, their impact on risk appetite may be offset by reports on factory sector activity in the Chicago area and consumer confidence.

Across the Channel meanwhile, preliminary Eurozone consumer price data for May are expected to show a decline in headline inflation to just a 0.1% year-on-year pace.

First quarter GDP readings are also due out in Belgium, Cyprus, Malta, Portugal, Estonia and Finland, together with retail sales and household consumption figures for April in Germany and France.

No major economic releases are scheduled in the UK.
