Friday preview: US producer prices, UK retail sales in focus

(Sharecast News) - Investors' focus at the end of the week will shift back towards the inflation picture in the U.S.. At 1330 GMT, the Department of Labor is expected to announce that the year-on-year rate of increase in headline wholesale prices ebbed from 1.0% for December to 0.6% in January.

Also due out, at 1500 GMT, are the preliminary results for the University of Michigan's survey of consumer confidence covering the month of February.

Among other things, financial markets will be attentive to whether or not the gauges of inflation expectations contained in that same survey are continuing to fall back to their pre-pandemic levels.

In the UK, at 0700 GMT the Office for National Statistics will report on retail sales in January.

Wholesale price data are also scheduled to be published in Germany, at 0800 GMT.
