Last trading week offered us some interesting data worth noting.
This week we expect volatility in the markets again through the central bank meetings.
We didn't get much out of the Eurozone last trading week. It was more interesting at the end of the week when we got the latest GDP and CPI/inflation data.
- CPI (annualised) - current: 8.9% / previous: 8.6%
- CPI (monthly) - current: 0.1% / previous: 0.8%
On Wednesday, we watched the monetary policy meeting of the Fed, which is estimated to have raised rates by 75 basis points.
TIP: Watch the Fed press conference
On Tuesday, the Bank of Japan published the minutes of its last monetary policy meeting in July, at which it again left rates unchanged.
And what's in store for the current trading week?
The current trading week is going to be a bit more varied again. Central banks will again be in our sights.
Tuesday: Reserve bank of Australia
Thursday: Bank of Englad, Czech National Bank
