Investors focus over the coming week will be split between Asia and a raft of surveys on global manufacturing sector conditions.

Setting the stage for the latter, Monday will bring with it data releases covering third quarter Chinese gross domestic product growth and readings for fixed asset investment, industrial production and retail sales in September.

Also on Monday, both European Central Bank President, Christine Lagarde, and Federal Reserve chief, Jerome Powell, are due to take to the podium.

Bank of England chief economist, Andy Haldane, is scheduled to do the same on Thursday.

All those events will be followed on Friday by survey readings for factory and services sector activity in the UK, euro area, and US which will help inform markets of how the various economies are faring in near to real time.

On home shores, the latest figures for monthly public sector borrowing requirements are due out on Wednesday, followed by a reading on UK consumer confidence for November the next day and for retail sales in September on Friday.
