Wednesday preview: Fed Beige Book in focus

Wednesday’s focus in financial markets will be on the Federal Reserve’s Beige Book, which will be published after the close of markets in the US.
Investors will be scrutinising its contents closely ahead of the US central bank’s next meeting on 21-22 September for any insights into the Fed’s thinking.

Public appearances from the presidents of the Federal Reserve Banks of New York and Dallas are scheduled for 1810 BST and at midnight, respectively.

Across the Channel meanwhile, the economic calendar is set to be quite light with the main report due out being for Italian retail sales in July.

Figures on French foreign trade in July and second quarter non-farm payrolls will also be published.

No major economic releases are scheduled in the UK.
