Week ahead: German and US GDP, US consumer confidence in focus

(Sharecast News) - Investors returning from the coming holiday-shortened week will be greeted by a steady stream of economic data on both sides of the Pond.
Key among those will be readings on first quarter gross domestic product in Germany and the US on Monday and Friday, respectively.

Also at the start of the week in Germany, the prestigious IFO institute will release its closely-followed business confidence index for May.

On Thursday meanwhile, euro area wide readings from the European Commission for consumer and industrial confidence in May are slated for release.

In the States, durable goods orders data for April are scheduled for Thursday, followed by a preliminary reading on consumer confidence in May come Friday.

At home, on Tuesday, the Confederation of British Industry will publish its Distributive Trades Survey for May and on Thursday the Treasury will auction 30-year Gilts.

Markets will be watching for any sign of improvement in the former and how well received the latter is.

Further afield, Thursday will bring with it a barrage of reports in Japan covering consumer prices, retail sales and industrial production.
