Economic calendar: Canadian elections and Brexit in the spotlight

6:58 AM October 21, 2019
  • Polish retail sales growth expected to accelerate

  • Brexit uncertainty continues

  • Federal elections in Canada

9:00 am BST - Poland, retail sales for September. CPI inflation and industrial production data from Poland released in the previous week was decent but wage growth disappointed. Retail sales data for September is expected to show an increase of 8% YoY against 6% YoY in August.


While today’s macroeconomic calendar is almost empty, traders should keep in mind that politics are likely to make the day interesting. UK Parliament decided to postpone vote on the Brexit deal and today we shall know when and whether the vote will take place. Apart from that, Canadians will go to poll stations today to vote in general elections. There is no clear favourite as polls give neither Trudeau’s Liberals, nor Conservatives enough seats to form a majority government. Preliminary results are expected on Tuesday, 1:00 am BST.
