The Key Events in the Week Ahead

November 03, 2012

Introduction

A handful of economic data reports are due in the week ahead but nearly all of the focus will be on Tuesday’s presidential election pitting incumbent Democrat President Barack Obama against Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

Key economic data reports due in the week ahead include the University of Michigan’s consumer sentiment index out Friday. The index is a survey of 500 households and their attitudes on the economy. Positive consumer sentiment means stronger consumer spending, which accounts for 70% of the economy. The October consumer sentiment index could get a boost from this week’s encouraging labor report, which showed a better-than-expected 171,000 jobs were created last month.

Also due next week on Monday is the Institute for Supply Management’s non-manufacturing index; out Tuesday is Redbook retail sales, a weekly survey of sales at chain stores, discounters, and department stores; a consumer credit report on Wednesday; and a report on import and export prices on Friday.
