The usual quiet two weeks over Christmas and New Year will make life quite dull for economic and corporate calendar watchers.
However, some big numbers such as non-farms, China data and UK purchasing manager indices (PMIs) do appear.

Dividends are applied after the close of the previous day’s session for each market. So, for example, the FTSE 100 goes ex-dividend on a Thursday, but the adjustment is applied at the close of the previous day e.g. Wednesday. The table below shows the days in which the adjustment is applied, not the ex-dividend days.
