Thursday has less indicators than Wednesday and Friday, but there still are important figures, such as American Unemployment Claims and PPI. Let’s see what’s up:
Swiss PPI is expected to turn positive, and rise by 0.6%. At the same time, SNB Governing Board Member Thomas Jordan will speak. He has moved the markets before. It may happen today as well.
In Europe, the ECB Monthly Bulletin will be released, and will shed some light on the suffering economies of Europe. In Britain, the CB Leading Index is published.
Crossing the Atlantic, American Unemployment Claims are predicted to squeeze to 608K. After lat week’s 601K, this number could easily go under 600K.
Also in the US, PPI is predicted to rise by 0.2%, and Core PPI by 0.1%. US inflation seems to be well contained.
