1:30 pm BST - US PPI for August: The median Bloomberg estimate suggests that producer prices did not change last month compared to the same period last year and remained at 1.7%. In terms of core PPI, the consensus points to a slight acceleration to 2.2% from 2.1%. Bear in mind that today’s data could be used by market observers in making predictions ahead of a CPI report due tomorrow, a relationship in the US has been quite small though.

Then, a press conference will be held where Governor Glapinski could be grilled over the latest plans sketched out by the ruling Law and Justice regarding a sharp increase in minimum wage over the coming years.
