    3 Numbers: Eurozone consumer confidence set to hold steady in February
    Retail spending has taken a post-Brexit vote hit in the UK. However British manufacturing seems to be weathering the post-vote era, with only a modest decline expected for the CBI Industrial Trends Orders Index for February. Meanwhile the European Commission’s Consumer Confidence Indicator is on track to hold steady this month. And turning to the leading EU economy, further declines in the German 10-year yield will signal renewed concern about the Eurozone.

    Morning Markets: March rate-hike odds jump to 44%

    3 Numbers: Annual US consumer inflation on track to hit five-year high
    The claimant count in the UK is likely to inch up for January, but with unemployment so low, the rise won't weigh on markets. In the US, annualised headline CPI should reach a five-year high. Meanwhile retail spending is expected to have slowed to a crawl in January, but the shopping trend should still hold at a moderate pace in year-on-year terms.

    3 Numbers: US inflation expectations shift higher
    While 1970s-style robust price rises are a long way off for the US, there's no doubt that the Fed is going to have to push harder against rising inflation even if the odds are low for a near-term rate hike.
