The day ahead in data

Key data locally will be led by Westpac’s monthly consumer conference gauge, the first reading since the federal election result in May.

There are also two RBA speeches; one by assistant governor Christopher Kent at the Australian Renminbi Forum (9:20am), followed by a speech from assistant governor Luci Ellis called “Watching the Invisibles” (7:00pm).

Looking abroad, Chinese inflation figures will be followed by all-important US inflation data tonight along with a speech by ECB President Mario Draghi.
