Week ahead: Global inflation outlook, ECB in focus

(Sharecast News) - The market spotlight during the coming week will shift to the outlook for inflation around the world.



Consumer price data for February scheduled for release on Wednesday in China and the US will be especially closely watched.

Also due out are producer price figures in the US, on Friday, alongside a preliminary reading on US consumer confidence for March, courtesy of the University of Michigan.

Against that backdrop, investors will be keen to hear the European Central Bank's take on the recent rise in government bond yields aorund the world, after Thursday's Governing Council meeting.

Chinese foreign trade data due out over the coming week will also be closely watched.

On the pandemic front, and as regards their impact on financial markets, the key may lie in US vaccination numbers which have quickly recovered following the winter to a daily pace of more than 2.0m.

Some analysts believe that the US inoculation drive in the States could suffice to cut off the rise in Covid-19 infections as the new strain first detected in the UK takes hold, allowing for a quicker opening of the economy.

On the Continent too, investors' hopes - and authorities' as well - appear to be pinned on a sufficiently quick rollout of vaccines.
