Calendar Week 43 – 2021

This week brings us several Central Bank meetings. The BOC release is late Wednesday night with a press conference an hour after. Rates expected to remain at 0.25% but the conference will be interesting to note with inflation ticking higher.

Followed by the BOJ mid afternoon on Thursday. Not much expected from that, as usual. The ECB is Thursday evening, and their press conference will also be key to note what their forward guidance is.

Outside of the Central Banks, news to watch for is the Australian Inflation numbers Wednesday morning and GDP numbers from USA and Canada on Thursday and Friday nights respectively. Friday night also brings the US consumer Price Index – a gauge of consumer spending behavior.
