Home Agenda Coming Up - Brexit ahead

Coming Up – Brexit ahead

The third week of 2019 is expected to be dominated by the Brexit vote due to take place on Tuesday January 15th in House of Commons of the British Parliament. Widely expected to fail to find a backing majority, the vote is expected to trigger a crisis, and may foreshadow a much-feared hard Brexit if no further agreement can be found by the March deadline.

The rest of the week will be dominated by the publication of trade and price data for December 2018. The week will end with the publication of the Michigan consumer confidence data.
