Here’s a snapshot of the main events due this week

The data flow tends to be fairly quiet in the week after NFP, and such is the case this week. There’s not a lot of big data until US retail sales and CPI on Friday. JOLTS is on Wednesday but isn’t usually a market mover, and it lags the jobs report by a month. The FOMC minutes are also Wednesday but coming after an FOMC with a presser, it’s unlikely to offer us anything we didn’t already know, save for updated views from the members. All times on this calendar are BST.
