All trading involves risk. Losses can exceed deposits.

Week commencing 19 June

Chris Beauchamp, market analyst

A quiet week awaits, by and large, with the big events of the month mostly out of the way. Perhaps the only real events to keep a watch for will be the weekly crude figures, followed by the flash eurozone data on Thursday afternoon (confidence figures) and the flash purchasing managers index (PMI) from the currency zone on Friday morning.

Trading statements from Wolseley and Whitbread will be the most watched-for figures on the UK corporate front.
