There are plenty of public holidays this week, but there’s still plenty going on, both in terms of macroeconomic releases and company earnings data.  Friday’s Non-Farm payroll number is always a closely watched figure, and major companies releasing their 2016 Q1 results this week include heavyweights such as pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, airlines like Lufthansa and Air France KLM and one of the world’s major global oil firms, Royal Dutch Shell.
