Caspar Rock: Monday markets - the week ahead on 28 May
Markets will be watching US inflation data. In the UK, expect continued sterling volatility as potential leaders vie to make themselves electable
We expect lighter trading volumes in the week ahead, but a few key themes will dominate:
- In the US markets will be watching inflation data and fresh figures on first quarter growth
- US/China trade issues, which dogged markets last week and focused on Huawei, will persist in coming days
- Sterling remained weak last week, but tried to perk up following the announcement of Theresa May’s resignation. Expect further volatility this week as potential leaders vie to make themselves more electable
