While it's broadly a quiet week ahead on the data front, Wednesday is one of the most important days on the UK economic calendar as Philip Hammond, Britain's new chancellor of the exchequer, delivers his first Budget speech.
The Autumn Budget, which was formerly known as simply the Autumn Statement, will set out the economic path of the new Theresa May-led Conservative government.
Chancellor Hammond's Budget debut
Amid all the growth and borrowing projections are likely to be a couple crowd pleasers. It's widely believed the chancellor will be aiming to win over younger voters by lowering stamp duty for first time buyers and new rules on student loans and tuition fees.
Look out for the market moving announcements, however. Any boost to the Help to Buy housing scheme could lift London-listed housebuilders, while any significant changes to borrowing forecasts will likely have an impact on Gilt yields.
More generally, savers and investors are expected to be targeted to pay for the giveaways.
US durable goods orders
With the UK Budget out of the way, Wednesday is also quite a big day for US data, with durable goods orders for October expected to dip.
In September, orders rose by a robust 2.2% and the data set is striving to recover some air of calm after an unusually large aircraft order during the summer skewed the data in the following months.
Analysts expect the October durable goods orders to rise by 0.5%, but this is a volatile data series and few trends can be gleaned from a single month's numbers.
US Federal Reserve open market committee meeting minutes
Investors will be watching for any mention or hint of another rate hike at the final Federal Reserve open market committee (FOMC) meeting of the year in the minutes of the October/November meeting, published on Wednesday evening.
The FOMC kept rates unchanged at 1.25% at this meeting, but noted strong growth, a robust labour market and inflation - although weaker than its 2% target - is seen returning to target in the coming months.
Most analysts believe the minutes will reflect expectations of a December rate hike - so watch for more hawkish rhetoric on growth, labour and inflation, which should buoy the dollar.
