The beginning of a new month always means payrolls Friday in the US and this week's labour market data for September could be a little skewed by the impact of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
Also this week is the latest monetary policy committee decision from the Reserve Bank of Australia's board of governors, while purchasing manager surveys help provide further insight into economic output during the current quarter.
US non-farm payrolls report
The highlight of the week's data releases is the US non-farm payrolls, the monthly assessment of the country's labour market.
While some negative impact from the two hurricanes that made US landfall during August and September is expected, the effects are likely to be fleeting.
James Knightley at ING said the hurricanes had a more limited impact on weekly jobless claims than Hurricane Sandy did in 2012 – and Sandy didn’t have a noticeable impact on payrolls.
"This means the early 70,000 consensus for payrolls may be too low," he said.
Most analysts have since pushed their estimates higher, and now the consensus stands at a likely 130,000 jobs created during September – down on last month's 156,000. Monthly employment growth currently stands at 176,000 in 2017.
Wages are expected to have risen, however, helping throw weight behind the Federal Reserve's notion that the tight labour market will push up pay and lead to higher consumption growth and inflation.
Analysts expect the rate of annual average wage growth to rise to 2.6% from the previous month's 2.5%.
US Institute for Management Supply index (ISM)
This is a purchasing managers index in any other economy and the US ISM surveys have been running pretty sweetly recently. The manufacturing report is published on Monday and the services on Wednesday.
August's manufacturing report showed the headline index at a robust 58.8 – an increase from July's reading of 56.3. The higher above the flatline of 50, the higher the rate of expansion in activity.
Again, some impact could be seen from the recent hurricanes but, again, is expected to be limited and analysts see a dip to 57.5 in September.
Similarly, the non-manufacturing index rose to 55.3 in August from 53.9 in July and with the weather-related impact taken into account, analysts forecast a dip to 54.9 in September.
Overall, the surveys are likely to point to continued strength in the US economy at the back end of the third quarter.
Knightley at ING suggests that together, the payrolls and ISM data have hawkish implications for US monetary policy.
He says: "We think it is very unlikely that any of next week’s data will be enough to throw a December rate hike off-track."
Reserve Bank of Australia rate call
The RBA has held pat on its main cash rate at 1.5% since August 2016, which marked the end of a mammoth five-year cycle of cuts from 4.75%.
Australian households have been suffering from low wage growth which has constrained consumer spending and appreciation in the Australian dollar has weighed on output and inflationary pressures.
It looks likely, therefore, that the central bank will keep the main cash rate at its record low for another month when the decision is announced on Tuesday.
Eurozone and UK PMIs
Manufacturing PMIs for September are published on Monday and have seen improvements in both the eurozone and UK during August – the eurozone's reaching a 77-month high.
New orders were largely responsible for pushing both indexes higher in August, and further progress is expected in September, with the eurozone manufacturing index holding at August's rate of 58.2, while the UK index rises to about 57 from 56.9.
The services indexes published on Wednesday are expected to reveal similar growth, with eurozone PMI rising to 55.8 in September from 55.6 in August and the UK, which dipped in August, back up to 53.5 from 53.2.
Best of the rest
The UK also sees its construction PMI published on Tuesday and the pace of growth is seen slowing in line with a similarly subdued housing market.
Eurozone retail sales for August are published on Wednesday and US factory orders for August are on Thursday. UK Halifax house prices are published on Friday.
Results are thinning for the current earnings season, and in the UK Avocet Mining and Tesco are among the biggest names. In the US, Whiting petroleum, Lennar Corp, Monsanto and PepsiCo report quarterly numbers.
