Wednesday preview: UK money supply growth, Next in focus

by Max Black

Investors’ focus in the middle of the week would swivel back to the UK.

At 0700 GMT, the Office for National Statistics would publish money supply growth figures for the month of February.

In parallel, the Financial Policy Committee would release a statement following its latest meeting and the minutes of the same.

Stateside, at 1400 GMT the National Association of Realtors would publish its Pending Home Sales Index for February.

On the corporate side of things, online fashion retailer Next was scheduled to release its full-year results.

The company had guided towards a 1.5% decline in full-year sales while profits before tax were seen down by 7.6% to £795m.

Cost price inflation was expected to peak during the summer at 8% and afterwards slipping to 6% in the back half of the year.
