Week ahead: Stage set for Parliament to approve Brexit

(ShareCast News) - Great Britain will formally announce its decision to exit the European Union this week, on Wednesday, kick-starting two years of negotiations with the bloc.
Against that backdrop, on Friday ONS will publish its final estimate for fourth quarter UK gross domestic product, together with current account data referencing the same period.

Also on Wednesday, investors will be perusing the later consumer credit and mortgage lending data for signs of a slowdown in consumer spend and in the UK housing market.

Over in the States, markets will likely again be keeping close tabs on the flow of central bank speakers, with no less than 11 US rate-setters expected to take to the podium.

Data-wise, Friday would be the most intense in terms of economic reports in the States, with readings on manufacturing activity in the mid-West, personal income and spending and consumer confidence all set for release on the same day.

Over in the euro area, the IFO institute's business confidence index for the month of March was scheduled to be published on Monday, with preliminary data on consumer price inflation in the single currency bloc due at the end of the week, on Friday.
