Economic calendar: Markets await for Canadian macro readings

8:11 AM September 18, 2023
  • Indexes in Asia and Europe pressured by Friday's declines on Wall Street
  • Relatively poor macro calendar for today, readings from Canada in focus

The beginning of this week is relatively poor in terms of macro data and their importance, however, the whole week ahead is very interesting and it is likely that expectations of upcoming events will electrify the markets. We will learn the decisions of a number of major central banks from the Federal Reserve, the Bank of England and the Bank of Japan through Turkey's CBRT or Scandinavia's Riksbank and Norges Bank, as well as PMI readings from major economies. However today the economic calendar is relatively light and volatility related to macro readings is likely to occur only on the USDCAD.
