Weekly Preview with a Focus on FTSE - VLOG 16 David previews the coming week which is full of important events for most of the world's leading economies. Tuesday has the first one of those as Consumer Spending in the U.S. will be announced. The measure of how much (and where) spending is going on is vital for understanding the economy and will impact the dollar and possibly gold.
The other main events are the GDP growth number again from the U.S., as well as China's Manufacturing Index and the UK's GDP with the last two coming on Friday.
David also focuses our attention on the FTSE 100, the index that includes the largest companies in the United Kingdom. David dissects the current trend dating from the Brexit vote last year and the different points at which it confirmed the upward trend.
