In the Euro Area, the key release is Consumer Prices which are expected to stay in deflationary territory. We are also looking for a rebound in both seasonally adjusted exports and imports for September. Apparently, the effects of a strong euro have not been felt yet. In Japan, third quarter GDP may show further growth as exports and consumer spending increased. Also, the Bank of Japan meets but we don’t expect any changes in current monetary policy. Finally, in the United Kingdom and Canada, headline inflation may start rising again in October. In sum, the average family income has not been rising proportionaly to consumer prices and we may have a very weak holiday.
