Week ahead: Omicron updates, US inflation in the spotlight

(Sharecast News) - All eyes over the coming week will be on updates from the World Health Organisation and South African officials regarding the latest findings on the Omicron variant of Covid-19, with the former expected on Monday.


It is against that backdrop, which may not yield all of the information that investors need to know, that they will have to interpret consumer price data due out in the US on Friday.

Worth noting, consensus is for another leg higher in US inflation with the annual rate of CPI seen hitting 6.8% in November, against an October print of 6.2%.

CPI releases are also scheduled in China and Germany, on Wednesday, as are monthly foreign trade figures from the former on Monday.

Interest rate decisions Down Under and in Canada will also be closely watched, on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.

Friday will also be the big day on home shores, with the Office for National Statistics set to publish its estimates for gross domestic product in October.
