  • Shares fell at the end of last week as stronger US employment figures caused expectations of an interest rate cut to be reined in a little
  • Q2 reporting will give businesses the chance to provide outlooks for the full year. Forecasts have been lowered already, but forward-looking commentary hasn’t so far changed
  • In his biannual testimony (Thursday) Federal Reserve chair Governor Powell is likely to reaffirm the message of strong consumer, weakness due to trade uncertainty, subdued inflation and a continued 'dovish' bias.
