Sparse economic calendar as market closes out week with cruises and consumers

The week look set to close quietly, with only one set of interims and the latest US consumer sentiment data to round off Friday

Empty chair at desk
Investors will have little to look out for at the end of this week

Friday is seeing a sparse calendar with little on bothe the company and data diaries.

As investors and traders head off for the weekend there will be a parting shot from Global Ports Holding PLC (LON:GPH), who will release its interim results, while there will be data from across the Atlantic in the form of the latest US consumer sentiment survey.

The cruise port operator will be hoping to mitigate any potential declines from the recent UK heatwave that caused many holiday makers to take a staycation as the British Isle sweltered.

The consumer sentiment will be eyed for any indicators that could suggest the recent raft of tariffs and trade spats between the US and several other major economies may be denting US consumer spending power.

Significant announcements expected:

Friday August 17:

Interims: Global Ports Holding PLC (LON:GPH)

Economic data: University of Michigan US consumer sentiment survey
