A packed economic calendar in the UK and overseas will keep UK asset traders on their toes and may offer new opportunities. The week starts with the UK Autumn Budget where Chancellor Hammond has more money than previously thought to help grease the cogs of the UK economy. He is expected to warn however, and hold back some monies, of the effect and the Treasury’s planning of a no-deal Brexit. Later in the week, the latest UK monetary policy announcement from the central bank, with all monetary settings expected to be left unchanged. The Quarterly Inflation Report may see inflation and growth expectations trimmed as Brexit uncertainty continues to cloud the picture. In Europe, a raft of growth and inflation figures, while the week ends with the latest US non-farm payroll release.
