Economic calendar: US PCE inflation data in focus

8:15 AM February 26, 2021
  • Equity sell-off continues

  • US core PCE inflation for January

  • G20 finance ministers and central bankers video meeting

Sell-off on equity markets continues with DAX futures pointing to around 200-points bearish gap at the launch of the European session. Spiking yields are a key theme on the markets now but Fed members continue to play down the issue. Today's economic calendar is light. US data in the afternoon will be interesting as it includes core PCE inflation - Fed's favourite measure. G20 finance ministers and central bankers will hold a video meeting today but it is likely to be a non-event. Today is the final stock trading session of the month therefore some bigger rebalancing flows may occur.
