Graphic for MW Outlooks


Jay and Julie Hawk



This week’s busy calendar begins on Monday with the OPEC Meetings in Vienna, in addition to data releases that include UK Manufacturing PMI and U.S. ISM Manufacturing PMI. On Tuesday, Australian numbers dominate the calendar, featuring the RBA’s Cash Rate and Rate Statement, a speech by RBA Governor Lowe, the Australian Trade Balance and Australian Building Approvals.

Wednesday will see the release of UK Services PMI, U.S. ADP Non-Farm Employment Change, the Canadian Trade Balance, Australian Retail Sales and U.S. ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI. No high impact releases are scheduled for Thursday in part due to the U.S. Independence Day bank holiday.

The week concludes on Friday with the release of key U.S. jobs data, including Non-Farm Payrolls, Average Hourly Earnings and the Unemployment Rate. The Canadian Employment Change and Unemployment Rate are also due out on Friday.


The following table contains significant upcoming data and events for each of the major economies, as well as the market’s consensus expectation and last result for each data release.
