Week ahead: UK CPI, US retail sales in focus

(Sharecast News) - Investors' focus over the coming week would shift away from the U.S. a little, even as the first quarter corporate earnings season got under way.
Of key importance would be the February UK employment report, on Tuesday, followed by consumer and producer price figures on Wednesday.

A barrage of activity indicator for the month of March were also due out in the People's Republic of China, come Wednesday.

In the States, the market spotlight would likely be on the March retail sales report, on Monday, and the Philly Fed factory index on Thursday.

Worth noting, finance ministers from around the world would be meeting to discuss global developments at the International Monetary Fund's Spring meetings on 15-20 April.

Geopolitics wouldn't be far from investors' minds either, given reports that Tehran might be plotting an imminent strike against Israel.
