Coming Up – BI Interest rates, PMIs and G7 Meeting

Week 34, 2019

Stockholm (Ekonamik) – While there will be 5 central bank meetings this week, they will all take place in relatively small emerging market economies, for the most part. While the Bank of Indonesia’s meeting will catch most of the monetary attention the banks of Zambia, Paraguay, Egypt and Sri Lanka will also decide on their interest rates.

Otherwise, the main news this week will be the inflation, GDP and composite PMI data updates across the developed world. Finally, we expect there to be some political noise as politicians start posturing ahead of the G7 Summit

next weekend.
