Aussie data dump

Fair warning, it's a huge week of news ahead for the Aussie economy.

The inflation print will rightly take centre stage, with a comfortably benign core result expected.

There appears to be a reasonable chance that the two-quarter annualised figure for core CPI will be just 1½ per cent, implying a further period ahead below the target 2 to 3 per cent range. 

So that's the main news to watch, because it has implications for monetary policy. 

But there's also building approvals, international trade, retail trade for Q3, private sector credit, manufacturing PMI, home values, export & import prices, and more.

Basically a whole lot more than can or should be discussed on a blog page.

You can get much more real-time reaction via my Twitter feed, as well as some thoughts on the stock markets, and, erm, football. 

And some good old-fashioned bantz too, of course.

You can also connect with me at Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram, and probably some other places as well.
