Week ahead: Fed, BoE and activity PMIs in focus

(Sharecast News) - Stock markets are recovering from the lows of the session as the week heads to a close, after the sudden bout of volatility yesterday that seemed to point to a renewed selloff.

The focus in financial markets over the coming week will continue to be on central banks, especially the US Federal Reserve.

For those market observers who think the Fed passed up the opportunity to push back on the recent rise in government bond yields, the current week is likely to prove especially interesting.

A steady stream of Fed speakers is scheduled to take to the podium throughout the week, including chairman Jerome Powell himself on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Bank of England Governor Andrew Bailey is also due to give a speech, on Tuesday, which will be closely watched for further insights into his thinking following the previous week's MPC decision.

Rate decisions are also expected in the People's Republic of China and in Switzerland, on Monday and Wednesday, respectively.

Key UK economic releases were also set for release, including the February employment report, on Tuesday, a reading on consumer prices in February, on Wednesday, and for retail sales on Friday.

Also expected on Wednesday was a raft of preliminary Purchasing Managers Indices for factory and services activity in the UK, euro area and US.
