Economic calendar: Powell and GDP report from Canada

7:29 AM June 30, 2020
  • Powell to testify before House Committee

  • Canad to release April GDP report

  • European inflation seen staying intact in June

Markets played down coronavirus fears yesterday and major indices from Europe and the United States booked decent gains. Today investors will be offered final GDP reading from Spain as well as flash CPI figures from Europe. In the afternoon, focus will be on Powell as the Fed Chair is expected to testify before the Committee on Financial Services on coronavirus aid (text of the speech was already released so it may not be a major market moving event). It is also worth tracking the monthly GDP release from Canada as it will be a hint from the major economy on how bad the start of Q2 was.
