The market spotlight in the coming week will be on key economic data releases on both sides of the Atlantic, with the latest monthly US non-farm payrolls figures and purchasing managers' indices in the Eurozone both set to be published.

Yet the latest US jobs market data may move markets less this time around, due to the distortions which are likely in the data due to the impact of recent hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico region.

In the UK, IHS Markit is scheduled to publish its factory and service sector purchasing managers indices for September on Monday and Wednesday, respectively.

They will come alongside similar surveys for the euro area.

Investors will also be closley monitoring the latest round of US Federal Reserve speakers, with chair Janet Yellen due to take to the podium on Wednesday.

On Friday, four regional Fed presidents, those for Atlanta, New York, Dallas and St. Louis were all due to make remarks.
