You're watching the Economic Calendar for Thursday, the 5th of October. Here's a closer look at the most important news releases. Swiss Consumer Price Index for September is up first at 7:15 AM. The annual inflation stood unchanged in August. Euro Zone Retail PMI for September follows at 8:10. The Index has been declining for two months straight and now stands just a fraction in the positive... Еще territory. Coming up next at 12:30 PM GMT is the closely watched weekly update on US Jobless Claims. Initial claims went up by 12 thousand during the week ending September 23, impacted by hurricanes Harvey and Irma, whereas the continuing claims dropped by 45 thousand during the week ending September 16. US Trade Balance for August comes at the same time. Trade deficit grew slightly larger in July as exports declined more than imports. And Canadian Trade Balance for August is out at this time as well. Now, the Canadian trade deficit actually narrowed in July and, in turn, imports fell faster than exports. US Factory Orders for August will be available at 2. Orders slipped in July, reversing a 3.2% gain the previous month. Australian Performance of Construction Index for September is up next at 10:30 in the evening, and the Index eased in August from the record-high level reached a month ago, but it did remain well in the positive territory. And finally there's the Japanese Leading Index for August, which is out at 5. The Index eased in July from 105.9 points the previous month.
