In this episode of our Week Ahead series, we’ll be looking at the main themes that will drive global markets over the coming week. In the US, we see how strong the US labour market is with NFP, Chair Powell’s testimony and Congress return from recess. In Europe, we’ll be watching inflation and the risk of lockdowns but we also have an energy crisis getting worse along with political implications. And finally, a quick wrap-up on the latest Covid-19 trends, events in Asia, and data releases to watch.
