In Japan this week we’ll see labour market, retail sales and industrial production data.

The earnings schedule includes updates from Intuit, Workday, easyJet, Synopsys, Hormel, Splunk, Marvell, Kroger and Ambarella.

Early on Monday the Australian retail sales figures were released. While it’s a relatively quiet day for data, late in the evening we’ll get the latest Japanese jobs/application ratio, unemployment rate and retail sales. The reading for September showed Japanese retail sales rising for the seventh consecutive month, an annual rise of 4.5%.
Tuesday 29 November
As well as German CPI data for November, on Tuesday we’ll see the latest UK mortgage approvals and lending, Japanese industrial production and the Conference Board’s US consumer confidence. Business software firms Intuit and Workday report to the market, along with convenience foods group Greencore and budget airline easyJet, which last week launched a campaign to hire more over-45s as cabin crew.

Dow component Salesforce leads the earnings on Wednesday after recently implementing a round of job cuts in response to challenging business conditions.

We expect earnings from US tech firm Marvell, discount store Dollar General, retail chain Kroger, beauty store Ulta, one-stop retailer Big Lots, semiconductor designer Ambarella and footwear retailer Designer Brands.
Friday 2 December
The first Friday of the month brings us the last US nonfarm payrolls release of the year, along with the US average hourly earnings and unemployment rate.
