After last week's bumper crop of rate announcements and tier-one data, it's a quieter week on the economic announcements front, with policy decisions from the Australian and New Zealand reserve banks among the highlights.
There's further news on the housing market and retail sales to give a picture of sentiment in the UK as the fourth quarter progresses.
Meanwhile, data on services and production - with separate industrial data from Germany, too - gives investors an insight into the health of the eurozone.
Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) policy meeting
Recent moves by the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England - both now on rate-tightening cycles - could prompt the RBA into action. But most analysts doubt it, and believe the RBA will leave its main rate on hold at 1.5% at Tuesday's meeting.
"The RBA board will likely keep rates on hold for the 15th month, particularly in light of soft third-quarter inflation data," says Tony Morriss at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
He adds, that if the RBA retains its clear neutral stance of the previous meeting, further downside pressure on the Australian dollar is likely.
Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) policy meeting
Although the NZ dollar has risen in recent days thanks to gains for commodity prices, it has slumped more than 6% since 23 September election that returned a new prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, who wants RBNZ reforms to include a mandate for full employment.
Such a mandate would make it much harder for the central bank to raise its main cash rate from its current 1.75% and, indeed, could make it more likely policy will be eased given the economic backdrop of slowing growth and easing inflation.
Any hints in Wednesday's statement about such a mandate, or any gloomy talk about the growth outlook will put pressure back on the NZ dollar.
German factory orders and industrial production
September data from Germany's manufacturing industry look set to confirm the ongoing strength of the eurozone's core economy.
Factory orders, published on Monday, having increased by an annual rate of 7.8% in August, are seen increasing at a slightly slower pace of 7.4% in September - a slower, but still very robust growth rate.
The monthly rise in industrial production - a very volatile measure - is expected at 1.5% in September, finishing off what is likely to be a strong third-quarter, after posting a 2.6% rise in August which was the strongest monthly gain since
