Friday preview: UK GDP, US consumer confidence in focus

(Sharecast News) – Investors’ focus at the end of the week will be on UK gross domestic product figures for December, alongside with detailed readings for industrial production, foreign trade and services output.
Economists at Barclays Research forecast a month-on-month drop of 6.5% after November’s 0.4% rise.

Stateside meanwhile, markets will be waiting on the preliminary results of the University of Michigan’s consumer confidence in January.

Also due out are a raft of economic indicators referencing December, including reports for industrial production and retail sales.

Across the Channel, final readings on French and Spanish consumer prices in December are scheduled for release.
