What to expect next week ? (September 2 – September 8, 2019)

Highlights

> The global economy is slowing very rapidly and the world trade was contracting in June. To anticipate the immediate future on the economic activity, companies’ surveys are key. Next week, the Markit and ISM surveys will be released. On September the 2nd, manufacturing sector surveys for Markit will be out. The ISM will be out on September the 3rd. These number will highlight the short term momentum of the global activity and the future dynamics of world trade.

> On September the 4th the Markit service sector survey will be released and the 5th it will be the ISM survey on services. In the US, the services survey no longer re balance the weakness of the manufacturing sector. The flash estimate for the Markit survey is now below 51. Fragility leading to recession?

> US employment for August will be released on September the 6th. Recent numbers on jobs creation have been revised down (annual revision) leading to a lower dynamics. This change is consistent with the change in trend seen in the JOLTS survey.

> Industrial Orders in Germany for July (September 5) will be another source of information on the strength of the global momentum as this indicator has a profile consistent with the OCDE corporate investment. Recent data show a rapid slowdown.
> Recent developments in the Middle East with higher tensions, this week-end, between Israel, Lebanon and the West Bank.
