Week ahead: Brexit negotiations, Chinese data in focus

(ShareCast News) - Monday will see the start of the fifth round of negotiations between the UK and the European Union, with Brussels's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier set to determine whether "sufficient progress" has been achieved before the 19 October EU summit.
Acting as a backdrop, investors' attention will be split between fresh data out of the People's Republic of China and continuing Fedspeak.

From Tuesday onwards, the National Bureau of Statistics may release its money supply and credit lending data for October, with foreign trade figures due out on Friday.

The day afterwards, on Wednesday, the US Federal Reserve will publish the minutes of its last policy meeting.

They will be followed by several first-tier economic data on Friday, including the latest consumer price figures, although the impact of recent hurricanes is likely to distort September's reading.

Indeed, headline US CPI is expected to rise from a 1.9% year-on-year pace last month to 2.3%.

Retail sales data due to be released alongside the American CPI report are projected to show a massive 1.6% jump month-on-month.

In Europe, events in Catalonia at the start of the week might overshadow CPI readings from Spain, France, Italy and Germany at the end of the week.

Meanwhile, in Japan, the spotlight will be on core machinery goods orders and money supply data on Wednesday and Friday, respectively.
