Week ahead: Traders brace for election results

(ShareCast News) - All eyes will be on the outcome of the elections on Wednesday and with some polls pointing to a quickly closing lead, traders will be on guard against a potential upset for the Tories which might result in a 'hung' parliament.


Against that backdrop, investors will also be keeping close tabs on the flow of data out of the People's Republic of China, with reports on services sector activity (Monday), international trade (Wednesday) and consumer prices in the Asian giant all set for release throughout the week.

Fresh estimates on monthly Chinese credit growth are also due out.

Earlier, on Monday, markets will key off services sector purchasing managers surveys in the UK and US, followed by equivalent data from the euro area on the next day.

Election aside, the other main event of the week will be Thursday's European Central Bank policy meeting, although no changes are expected in the monetary authority's main policy settings or guidance.
