An interesting week lies ahead with a number of indicators covering the early impact of the COVID-19 coronavirus
outbreak on the global economy. In Australia, consumer confidence, services and manufacturing gauges,
engineering construction activity, wealth and detailed jobs data are all released.
In the US, economic growth (GDP), housing, durable goods (business investment), spending and manufacturing
data are all issued. The US Federal Reserve’s key inflation gauge is also due.
In China, industrial profits data is scheduled.
