  • The signing of the phase one trade deal between the US and China will be the highlight of the week. So far, details of the agreement have been scant.
  • This week is a busy one for US economic data. Inflation data should continue to show a strengthening trend. 
  • The Q4 reporting season kicks off, with a concentration of banks and other financial services companies reporting this week.
  • Risk markets were a little higher last week, as concerns about the situation in the Middle East subsided.  
  • The UK has seen speculation about a rate cut, leading to weakness in sterling and a stronger gilt market.
