Friday preview: UK fourth quarter GDP, US consumer confidence in focus

(Sharecast News) - The market spotlight at the end of the week will be on a preliminary reading for fourth quarter UK gross domestic product. Consensus is for a slight 0.5% quarter-on-quarter increase in the pace of expansion, following the 16.0% rebound seen over the three months to September.

Nevertheless, Friday's data are also expected to lay bare the extent of the damage wrought by the pandemic across 2020, with GDP expected to be a bit more than 8% below its year earlier level.

Also due out are monthly readings for construction, industrial and services output, alongside December data on foreign trade.

Stateside the focus will be on a preliminary reading for consumer confidence in the month of February, courtesy of the University of Michigan.

No major economic releases are scheduled in the euro area or in Asia.
