The video clips below provide a handy summary of the reports expected on the economic, financial and corporate front around the globe during the week ahead.

U.S.: Quiet before economic storm

There’s little in the way of interesting economic data next week, but corporate earnings are just around the corner. Oh, and Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad may sell out.

Europe: Airlines, BoE and ECB in focus

British Airways (OTC:BAIRY), EasyJet (EJETF.PK) report March traffic, H&M unveils first-quarter results and European and U.K. central banks make interest-rate decisions.

Asia: Central banks in focus

The Reserve Bank of Australia’s interest rate decision is expected to be a cliff hanger as Japanese and Korean central banks are likely to keep rates steady.
