The Most Important Central Bank Releases This Week

This week in central banking brings policy meetings from the RBNZ and the Riksbank, both of which are likely to hold rates. RBNZ policymakers are likely to sound slightly dovish, while Riksbank policymakers are likely to take a more hawkish tack as they attempt to signal that further rate hikes remain possible. This week’s remarks from BOE and RBA policymakers are likely to be far less optimistic, especially as the BOE sees Brexit uncertainty dragging on financial conditions. These global risks are keeping Fed and ECB policymakers busy this week, with both sets of speakers likely to sound neutral.
