FOMC meeting minutes disappointed investors.
At the July meeting, only two members of the committee voted for a rate hike.
Yesterday the United Kingdom published good labor market data. The claimant count change decreased by 8.6K, while expected the growth by 5.2K. And the average wage increased by 2.4%.
Today the UK will present data on retail sales. The forecast is 0.2% vs. -0.9% in June. The United States will present data on the Philadelphia FED manufacturing index. The forecast is 2.0 against -2.9 in July. The initial jobless claims are expected to change little: 269K against 266K the previous week.
