Week ahead: Carney and US employment report in focus

LONDON (ShareCast) – (ShareCast News) – In the coming week, Bank of England governor Mark Carney will have a chance to explain the Monetary Policy Committee´s take on recent events in global capital markets, following recent ‘dovish’ remarks (and actions in some cases) from some MPC (KOSDAQ: 050540.KQnews) members and his peers in the Eurozone and Japan.
On Thursday, the MPC will decide on interest rates and the BoE will publish its latest Inflation Report.

However, the reaction to any remarks might be muted given that the monthly US employment report is scheduled to be published the next day (consensus: 200,000), right on the heels of a non-committal Fed policy statement on 27 January.

Setting the stage for the governor will be a raft of manufacturing sector data from around the globe, the UK included.

China will kick-off the proceedings on Monday, when Caixin publishes its manufacturing sector purchasing managers´ index for January.

Similar data for the Eurozone in particular will also be closely watched, given the potential for an easing move from the European Central Bank when it next meets. A poor showing might help to shorten the odds of another cut in the monetary authority´s deposit rate.

Central bank decisions in Australia and Mexico may also draw more attention than usual given the recent sharp declines in commodity prices around the world.
