A relatively quiet week beckons in terms of new economic data. Private sector credit, building approvals and business investment are the indicators of most interest. The week kicks off on Tuesday in Australia when the latest weekly reading on consumer confidence is issued by Roy Morgan and ANZ.
Following the Jackson Hole central bankers’ annual economic policy symposium over the weekend, US economic growth, trade, inflation, consumer confidence and business surveys will be in focus during the week.
