Week ahead: Barrage of economic data awaits

(ShareCast News) - The upcoming week is set to again be a holiday-shortened one, with UK and US markets closed on Monday and many Southern European markets likely to see low trading volumes on Friday, due to the feast day of the Epiphany.
Regardless, investors will be asked to hit the ground running - although many traders will likely still be away from their desks - with a slew of first-tier economic indicators scheduled for release.

First out, over the weekend, will be the 'official' Chinese manufacturing sector PMI for the month of December.

It will be followed throughout the week by similar surveys referencing activity in the factory and services sectors in all the main geographies.

Nonetheless, as always at the start of each month, it is the monthly US non-farm payrolls report, due out on Friday, which will draw the most attention.

The minutes of the most recent US central bank policy meeting, on Wednesday, and the latest Chinese official FX reserves data, on Friday, may also move markets.
