Friday preview: US personal income and spending, consumer confidence in focus
Investors will be treated to a fresh batch of economic data Stateside at the end of the week.
Of greatest importance perhaps will be the latest inflation readings contained in the report on personal incomes and outlays.
Consensus is for a decline in the price deflator for Personal Consumption Expenditures's headline rate from 6.6% year-on-year for March to 6.3% in April.
The core PCE price index meanwhile is seen slipping from 5.2% to 4.9%.
A final reading on US consumer confidence and their expectations for inflation, courtesy of the University of Michigan, will also be closely-watched.
In the euro area meanwhile, M3 money supply figures are expected to reveal only a dip in the year-on-year rate of growth from 6.4% for March to 6.3% in April.
No major economic reports are scheduled for release in the UK.
