The Week Ahead: 28th June – 2nd July 2021

Overview for the Week Ahead

It is a big week for the U.S. economy with several job reports on tap along with earnings from big retailers and the first restaurant IPO in quite some time which is a blast from the past; Krispy Kreme. Also, another well-known name Legal Zoom will IPO as well. 

The U.S. jobs report on Friday will be the main economic event of the coming week, with investors hopeful for signs of improvement in the labour market after two months of slower than expected jobs growth. U.S. employers are expected to have added 650,000 positions in June while the unemployment rate dipped to 5.7%. The second quarter is ending, and market watchers will be looking ahead to the next six months after a strong first half to 2021. 

Chicago PMI, Manufacturing PMI, trade, and factory order numbers will be released this week. Barring particularly dire numbers, these stats should have a muted impact on the Dollar.   

OPEC+ meets on Thursday with energy traders anticipating another production increase as the demand outlook continues to recover. Meanwhile, Wednesday’s euro zone inflation data could test the European Central Bank’s resolve to look past short-term price increases. 

For the UK this week, updates on COVID-19 and the government’s plans to ease restrictions or to extend will remain the key driver.
