What to Expect From the Week Ahead

Markets have ground down over the past week, but have proved increasingly resilient to the bad news coming from the Eurozone.

This week’s economic data is not likely to rock the boat. The biggest news will be US unemployment data. Markets may wobble further if it is below expectations, but there is little good news in the price of shares at the moment.

The week starts slowly, with interim and final results from a number of smaller companies, including a slew of technology companies. It has been a buoyant year for the technology sector, but it is geared into corporate health so markets will be looking for signs that it is waning.

On Tuesday, results from toy-maker Character and Topps Tiles will be closely watched for insight into the health of the consumer. Both operate in different parts of the market, but are vulnerable to sentiment. Recent retail results have been better than expected with Dixons and Kesa both reporting slower declines.
