Attention may switch back to the relative strength of China, where loan growth and retail sales figures this week should provide some clues to the strength of its continued recovery. There are also important economic statistics from the Eurozone, which will show the extent to which the Euro crisis is weighing on recovery there.

The week starts slowly, with a market update from Rentokil and interim management statements from Telecity and Xchanging, but little to divert the market. There are a slew of retail results on Tuesday with Marks & Spencer and Carphone Warehouse giving half-year figures. Management comments on the relative strength of the consumer going into the important Christmas period will be widely watched. Associated British Food, Vodafone and Babcock also release results.

On Wednesday, it’s the turn of Sainsburys. Interim results from the retail giant will provide some insight as to whether the UK consumer is rolling over. The group will be rewarded if it shows any sign of putting a dent in Tesco’s dominance and markets will be watching the success or otherwise of its store opening programme. Great Portland Estates also reports interim results today.
