It is a holiday shortened week with U.S. markets closed for Good Friday, but plenty of activity awaits investors. Central banks around the world will be speaking about their respective monetary policies and potential rate hikes as a plethora of inflation data comes in. CPI and PPI figures will come for the Eurozone as well as the U.S. Tuesday and Wednesday, and M2 money supply numbers from China and Japan drop early in the week. Markets will get an advanced look at British economic growth and their labor market situation. More employment data comes from Australia on Wednesday with the monthly net jobs figure and then on Thursday with the weekly U.S. unemployment claims. Crude oil inventories will be important to note after last week’s surprise increase, but investors should keep watch for more Tier 1 U.S. data late in the week with retail sales, followed by the Empire State Manufacturing Index and industrial production figures.
