Inflation and unemployment are on the IBEX 35 weekly agenda until the end of August

Next week, investor interest in the IBEX 35 will focus on the release of preliminary August inflation for eurozone countries and this month’s US unemployment rate.

Tomorrow and Tuesday there will be sessions in Europe with no relevant macroeconomic data for the markets, which on Wednesday will watch the inflation releases for August from Germany and Spain ahead of schedule.

On Thursday, other consumer price indices (CPI) with the same characteristics will be released in other euro area countries, such as France, Portugal and Italy, where the July unemployment rate for this currency area will also be released.

Europe ends the week and starts September with the release of Italy’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on Friday.

In the United States, the agenda over the course of the week, which investors in the IBEX 35 will be paying close attention to, will be broader, starting on Tuesday with the August consumer confidence index, after a Monday of little macroeconomic activity relevant to investors.

Wednesday is the turn of this month’s Private Employment Survey (ADP) and the second revision of the country’s GDP for the second quarter.

Thursday’s US session will be dominated by August’s personal consumer spending index, known as the PCE deflator, which the Federal Reserve uses as a benchmark instead of the consumer price index (CPI) for making monetary policy decisions.

On the agenda of investors in the US, and consequently in other markets and indices such as the IBEX 35, on Friday is the unemployment rate for August, although the unemployment index is also published in this country on the same day -Farm Job Creation, report on average hourly wages and ISM indicator for manufacturing activity.
