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.
