Week ahead: Japan data to take centre stage

(ShareCast News) - Japanese data were to take centre stage during the holiday-shortened trading week, with the latest figures on the unemployment rate and consumer prices in the month of November set for release on Monday.
They would be followed by figures on industrial production and retail sales for that same month on the following day.

Stateside, the most relevant release was not scheduled for until Friday, when the Chicago manufacturing sector PMI was due out, although the Conference Board´s consumer confidence gauge on Tuesday and the latest weekly tally for unemployment claims would likely also attract attention.

Back in the UK, BBA was set to release its latest home loan purchase figures on Wednesday, with Halifax´s measure of home prices for December also set to be published during the week.

Euro area M3 money supply figures were also expected for Thursday.
