This week will have a considerably heavier news agenda than last week. The agenda will be dominated by quite a lot of U.S. high-impact economic data centered on the end of this week, with the Non-Farm Payrolls data due Friday being key. Therefore, volatility this week should be considerably higher than it was last week, helped by the fact that the traditional summer holiday season of low volatility ends on Thursday.
The market will probably be most active on Friday, and Wednesday to a lesser extent.
