The Most Important Central Bank Releases This Week

Six G10 currency central banks are active this week, but none are likely to dramatically move markets. BOE policymakers will have to juggle ongoing Brexit turmoil, so they will likely be as uncontroversial as possible. Across the Channel, ECB policymakers are likely to be similarly staid, but perhaps a bit more hawkish. Likewise, both BOC and RBA policymakers could err slightly hawkish, though neither bank is likely to overtly signal a tightening timeline. Governor Olsen from the Norges Bank will likely sound more neutral, as falling oil prices may diminish inflationary pressure. In neighboring Sweden, Riksbank policymakers may sound a bit more hawkish as they signal a rate hike is likely in the coming months.
