Facebook LinkedIn Twitter

Each week brings you five things to look out for in the week ahead (07-07-2014). Essential news that will shape the week and help you keep ahead in the world of business and finance.

UK July interest rates: The Bank of England will meet on Wednesday and Thursday to discuss July’s interest rates. Although most analysts expect a point hike in the first three months of 2015, no change is expected for the rest of this year, with weak wage growth suggesting there are still obstacles to overcome.

China inflation reports: On Wednesday, China will release June’s consumer and producer inflation reports, followed by trade and money supply data on Thursday. The country’s consumer price index (CPI) is expected to have risen 2.4% from a year earlier.

US June policy meeting minutes: Also on Wednesday, eyes will turn to the United States as the Federal Reserve releases the minutes from its June policy meeting. Growth prospects for the year were downgraded after last month’s meeting, so markets will be looking for signs of optimism.

African inflation updates: African nations will announce a series of inflation updates, with Mauritius reporting on Monday, Ghana on Wednesday, Egypt on Thursday, and possible reports from Senegal and Angola.

Indonesia election prelims: Indonesia’s preliminary election results will be released on Thursday. Recent polls favour reformist Jakarta Governor Joko Widodo over former special forces officer General Prabowo Subianto; the result will have a profound impact on the future of the country’s current slow growth and huge deficit.
