US Prelim GDP (Wed, 15:30 MT time) – the USD really needs support to return to previous highs. The forecast is weak, but if the actual data is greater, the USD will rise.
ANZ Business Confidence (Thu, 04:00 MT time) – traders will trade the NZD on the businesses’ survey. The figure above 0 is good for the economy and the NZD, below 0 is negative for the economy and the NZD.
AUD Private Capital Expenditure (Thu, 04:30 MT time) – traders will get clues on the change in the total inflation-adjusted value of businesses’ new capital expenditures. The forecast is encouraging. The AUD has chances to rise.
CAD GDP (Thu, 15:30 MT time) – GDP is a leading measure of the economic activity. If the actual data is greater than the forecast, the CAD will go up.
EUR CPI Flash Estimate (Fri, 12:00 MT time) – the forecast is neutral. If the actual data exceeds the forecast, the EUR will rise.
