Geopolitical factors and inflation remain the main drivers of financial markets. Let’s see how to use that in trading!
After election effects on the BOE
The Bank of England will conduct a meeting and release a monetary policy summary at 14:00 MT time on December 19.
The monetary policy summary is published every month, which helps to keep investors updated with the current economic situation. The summary contains the votes on the interest rate, forecasts, and other policy measures. During the previous meeting, the votes for the rate changes split unexpectedly, as two out of nine members of the bank's monetary policy committee supported a cut of the interest rate. Let's see if the result of the UK general election affects the BOE decision this time.
IF the BOE is optimistic, the GBP will rise;
If the BOE is pessimistic, the GBP will fall.
Main news that will drive the market in the upcoming week include CB Consumer Confidence Index, Canadian GDP, and US Core PCE Price Index
The Federal Reserve (Fed) will announce its Interest Rate Decision and make a statement about the future monetary policy on Wednesday, September 21, GMT+3. After the higher-than-expected inflation numbers published on September 13, there’s almost no doubt the Federal Reserve will come up with another 75-basis-point rate hike. However, surprised by the CPI numbers, several Fed members announced the possibility of a 100-basis-point rate hike on Wednesday.
Every week we expect many interesting events that can shake the market.
