(Sharecast News) - Investors' focus at the end of the week will be on a deluge of first-tier economic data out of the US.

Chief among those will be a report on retail sales for April and a preliminary reading on US consumer confidence.

Gauges for inflation expectations contained in the latter will be of particular interest given financial markets' heightened concern of late on that front.

Also due out are readings for monthly industrial production, business inventories and import prices.

Across the Channel meanwhile, at 1130 BST the European Central Bank will publish the minutes of its most recent rate-setting meeting.
