Friday preview: US retail sales, consumer confidence in focus

By Alexander Bueso

Date: Thursday 14 Oct 2021

LONDON (ShareCast) - (Sharecast News) - Financial markets' attention at the end of the week will be squarely on the release of a raft of economic indicators in the US.


Chief among those is the monthly retail sales report for September, which economists continued modest growth outside of automobiles following a sharp bounce back in sales during August.

Also due out is a preliminary reading on the University of Michigan's consumer confidence survey for the month of October.

Across the Channel, investors will be waiting on final readings for consumer price inflation in France and Italy, alongside new car registration data for the European Union.

No major economic releases are scheduled in the UK.
