The situation on financial floors remains very tense. The rapid spread of the pandemic in Europe and the U.S., the slowing global economic recovery, the approaching U.S. presidential election, difficulties in developing a COVID-19 vaccine and many other factors significantly reduce investors' appetite for risk.

In recent weeks, investors have begun to monitor macroeconomic statistics more closely, especially ahead of schedule indicators, to assess the impact of the new Coronavirus Pandemic on economic activity. A new forced lockdown could have a crushing effect on the entire global economy.

The market is expecting a fairly busy news calendar in the coming week. On Monday, a large block of macroeconomic statistics from China will be published. During the week, important macroeconomic data from the UK is expected to be published. On Friday, all market attention will be focused on the interim PMI data of the manufacturing and services sector in the EU and the United States for October.
