Business bites: a numbers week … OPEC speaks … Rio’s technique …

Expect data, data and more data this week. And other business tidbits of the day.

Calling all nerds. It’s data heaven for all those economic nerds and fellow obsessives this week, here and around the world. From a meeting of the Reserve Bank, plus third-quarter GDP figures and the start of monthly data for October and November (such as retail sales, trade car sales and house prices), to the European Central Bank’s meeting on Thursday night, which is expected to expand the multibillion-dollar spending program, plus cut interest rates deeper into negative territory, not to mention the Reserve Bank of India’s meeting tomorrow. Then there’s the US jobs report for November on Friday night (with another 200,000-plus figure forecast and a jobless rate of 5%), plus two appearances by Fed chair Janet Yellen, which will all set the framework for a rate rise (the first since 2006) by the Fed in mid-December.
