Monday's recap is here. Together, let's recap the highlights of the past week. And that was.
On Tuesday, we watched the preliminary PMI data from the euro area, which came out negative for the euro.
On Tuesday, we focused our attention on the UK labour market data, which was incomplete.
Tuesday's PMI, came out positive for the USD. The manufacturing index rose to 50 points, beating market estimates.
On Wednesday, we focused our attention on the Bank of Canada meeting. The Bank of Canada left the key interest rate unchanged as planned.
The Australian dollar had a fairly positive week, strengthening mostly on strengthening quarter-on-quarter inflation.
What's in store for the current trading week?
Tuesday will be mostly about Japan (JPY). Overnight, unemployment rate data will come in, accompanied by retail sales and the Bank of Japan meeting at 3:30. Again, the BoJ is not expected to raise rates, but we could already hear that a hike plan is on the table.
