Week's main events (September 12 – September 16)

There are many Consumer Price Index (CPI) reports coming out this week for August. Germany, Spain, and the United States will publish their report on Tuesday, the United Kingdom will publish its report on Wednesday, France will publish its report on Thursday, and Italy, with the Eurozone, will publish their reports on Friday. Analysts forecast lower inflation in the US, while inflation in the UK and Europe is expected to be at the same level, although there may be surprises upwards.
