The mid-winter lull in economic data continues in Australia. However, the all-important June employment report is issued on Thursday. Tourism and business sales data will also be keenly observed.
Over the coming week, China economic growth, investment, production, retail sales and house price data are all issued. In the US, retail spending, housing, industrial production and the US Fed’s Beige Book will be in focus. US Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s Humphrey-Hawkins testimony before the US Senate Banking Committee will be a focus for the US economic outlook.
