Proactive Investors - Run By Investors For Investors

Macro matters will be in focus on otherwise low-key Friday

It is looking like a quiet Friday, though most traders will not be looking at single-stock stories.
US economic stats will be in focus

Amid global equity volatility, the market’s attention is not particularly on single-stock stories – which, for Friday’s market preview report, is just as well because the schedule is looking very light.

Investors may, indeed, look entirely past the finals results coming from British potato and daffodil seed company Produce Investments PLC (LON:PIL).

Mining firm Vedanta Resources Plc (LON:VED) may receive some sector attention as it releases interims, elsewhere, investment manager Ashmore group Plc (LON:ASHM) will also feature with a trading update

The spotlight will instead be on the next batch of American economic stats which will include import, export and consumer indicators – all of which will naturally feed into the current narrative around the American economic picture and US interest rates.

Friday, October 12:

Finals: Produce Investments PLC (LON:PIL)

Economic data: US import, export prices; US consumer sentiment
