The FTSE 100 has had a moderate week rising to 7020. The markets have had a rough time over the past weeks due to fears over US interest rates and the stalling Brexit talks. Chinese growth figures were also very slightly below market expectations.

The past week was very quiet and so is the week ahead. October is always a very quiet month for actual reporting and dividend declarations but there are always plenty of trading statements. From a reporting perspective, things pick up very strongly in the week beginning 5th November.

There are no big ex-dividends this coming Thursday.

New into DividendMax this week at the request of members we have Shanta Gold and Palace Capital.
