Investing.com -- The big story in Canadian economics this week will be July’s Consumer Price Index, due from Statistics Canada on Tuesday. Economists expect the reading to have moderated from June’s red-hot  8.1% year-on-year increase, as energy costs ease the housing market shows signs of cooling.

The CPI will not be the only inflationary index due this week in Canada; investors will also be keeping an eye on the industrial product and raw materials price indices due Thursday. 

The week ahead will also include key U.S. economic data and releases, including the U.S. Federal Reserve’s release of meeting minutes from its last policy decision in July. Retail sales and weekly jobless claims can also be expected to provide direction to markets.
