Week commencing 16th September : BST

Overview:

Hot on the heels of the ECB’s return to QE, we have meetings from the Fed, BoE and BoJ. Only the first (FED) of these is expected to be of much importance, since the bank is expected to cut rates again, but all three will be watched for dovish commentary.

Key data this week includes the German ZEW figure, UK CPI and eurozone consumer confidence.

Note:

The following figures reflect the expectations of the market as of Sunday. You should obtain up-to-date expectations for each event as it draws nearer.

I strongly recommend using the Talking-Forex service to stay abreast of all market expectations and data outcomes.
