Proactive Investors - Company news dominates next week with the start of the bank's quarterly reporting season seeing updates from Lloyds, Natwest and Barclays (LON:BARC) with HSBC (LON:HSBA) to follow.

Sainsbury 's, AstraZeneca (NASDAQ:AZN), AB Foods and LSEG are also scheduled to report, so by Friday there should be a decent handle on how the UK's biggest and best see things shaping up in the country.

A string of US big names are also reporting, with Tesla the stand out given recent reports of slowing sales and growing Chinese competition.

Facebook (NASDAQ:META) owner Meta, GE, Pepsico (NASDAQ:PEP), and the oil giants Chevron and Exxon also update.

Economic news takes a back seat over the next few days with UK borrowing (Tuesday) and consumer confidence (Friday) the main points of interest.
