Coming Up – ECB, Riksbanken and Norges Bank to Hold Rates

Stockholm (Ekonamik) – If last week saw a single central bank meeting in South Korea, next week will be very much the opposite, with fourteen different interest rate decisions, not least from the ECB, Riksbanken and Norges Bank. The expectation from Swedbank and Handelsbank Capital Markets is that Riskbanken and Norges Bank will hold their rates constant. Similarly, following last month’s cut to the deposit facility, no one is expecting the ECB to cut rates again this week.

Otherwise, the main news will come from macroeconomic data, of which the stand out contributions will come advanced October Composite PMIs for the Eurozone, France, Germany, Japan and the USA due on Thursday. Otherwise, leading indicators for Argentina will be interesting for those of us following the Argentinian presidential election saga, while unemployment in Mexico and GDP in South Korea will also be meaningful.

Politically, Canada will hold its Federal elections on Monday, while the Russia Africa Summit will take place on Thursday.
