Thursday preview: ECB minutes, Fed speak in focus
Wednesday will be the European Central Bank's turn to publish the minutes of its last monetary policy meeting.
With the harsh glare of global investors' attention increasingly on the monetary authority's next moves, focus will be on any new insights that might be gleaned regarding just how aggressive it will be and for how long.
Also due out across the Channel are industrial production figures for the euro area's largest economy, Germany, in May.
At 1045 BST, ECB chief economist Philip Lane will deliver a speech on "The accelerated green transition in the post-Covid 19 era".
No major economic announcements are scheduled in the UK.
In the US, the spotlight will be on speeches from Federal Reserve governor Christopher Waller at 1700 BST.
St.Louis Fed chief, James Bullard, will take to the podium at an event at the same hour to talk about the US economy and monetary policy.
Further afield, in Malaysia, rate-setters will be meeting to decide on interest rates.
Consensus is for a 25 basis point increase in the overnight rate to 2.25%.
