  • Equity markets ended last week slightly lower following the drone attack on Saudi oil facilities, with gold and defensive assets higher.
  • This week is lighter on data, but markets will be watching preliminary September manufacturing confidence figures (PMI).
  • In the UK, we should hear the Supreme Court's ruling on the two cases relating to the prorogation of Parliament, with the possibility of further sterling volatility.
  • A surprise cut in Indian corporation tax has fuelled a rally in  Indian equities.
