A holiday impacted week with US Thanksgiving on Thursday. As such, the calendar is front loaded on Tuesday and Wednesday with lots of US data on the docket. Focus will be on the second reading of Q3 GDP and Fed Chair Jerome Powell's speech, the first since his impromptu meeting with US President Trump last week.
Meanwhile in the UK, the Tories continue to have a commanding lead in the latest general election polls with two more live televised debates from Sky News and the BBC this week.
BlackRock and Goldman Sachs are among those on Wall Street touting GBP as a top trade for 2020 if Boris can win and push through a Brexit deal. BofAML expect the currency to hit $1.39 by the end of 2020 and GS sees a rally of more than 4% versus the EUR by the end of Q1 2020.
Finally, US retail updates on Black Friday are always of interest and Chinese PMI data on Saturday will be important to see if the recent lift in the manufacturing indicator is sustained.
