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
A strong set of data here is likely to be euro positive and the single currency has already gained nearly 10% against the dollar this year.
UK retail sales - British Retail Consortium (BRC)
A retail lobby group that very much tells it how it is, the BRC last month said that much of September's 1.9% growth in retail sales was being driven by price increases filtering through after inflation hit 3% that month.
Official Office for National Statistics data showed a monthly 0.8% fall in September, bringing the annual rate of growth down to 1.5%.
Further weakness in consumer activity in October is likely to put further downward pressure on the pound as investors push back their expectations for future interest rate increases.
Best of the rest
On Monday, look out for the impact on the euro of PMI service sector data. This has underperformed the manufacturing report in recent months, but remains reasonably robust.
UK house prices are examined: on Tuesday by the Halifax bank and on Thursday by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. Look for any impact on housebuilders on the top two tiers of the London stock market.
There's little from the US during this public holiday-shortened week - but watch for any market-moving comment from Janet Yellen, the incumbent Federal Reserve chief who hands over her stewardship of the world's most important central bank in February. She speaks in Washington DC on Tuesday.
In the US on Monday, Trip Advisor and Weight Watchers report on their third quarter. On Tuesday Marriott International and Snap, while on Wednesday it’s the turn of Eastman Kodak. On Thursday we see Macy’s, Time Inc and Walt Disney and on Friday it’s JC Penney.
In the UK, look out for Associated British Foods and Imperial Brands on Tuesday, Marks and Spencer and SSE on Wednesday. On Thursday it’s AstraZeneca, Burberry, Sainsbury and National Grid, and on Friday it’s House of Fraser.
