Week ahead: Central banks, US jobs report in the spotlight

(ShareCast News) - Central banks will be back in focus next week, with the minutes of the US central bank's last policy meeting set to be published on Wednesday, given the possibility that the global interest rate cycle - not just in the States - might slowly be starting to shift gears.
Precisely for that reason, Canadian and Australian rate-setters' policy decisions on the day before may attract more attention than usual as well.

To take note of in that regard, are the governor of the Bank of Canada's recent 'hawkish' sounding remarks.

Nevertheless, market moves may be restrained given the event risk which always surrounds the release of the monthly US jobs report at the start of each month.

On Friday, the US Labor Department is expected to announce that job growth in the US ran at a 180,000 person pace in June.

China's Caixin manufacturing sector purchasing managers' index on Monday also holds the potential to move markets.

Against that backdrop, investors in the UK are awaiting the latest Markit factory PMI data for June, also due out on Monday, followed by the results of a similar survey for the services sector on Wednesday and industrial production data on Friday.
