CBI, BoE, RBA, PMIs, EcFin Meeting and Spanish Elections

Stockholm (Ekonamik) – The 45th week of 2019 will witness the monetary policy meetings of twelve central banks around the world. Although the most prominent meetings will take place in the UK, Australia, and Iceland, emerging market analysts will also be keeping an eye on the meetings of the central banks of Peru, Malaysia and Thailand.

Datawise, the main development will be the publication of Composite PMIs for most of the world on Tuesday and Wednesday. Also noteworthy for those worrying about imbalances in the international balance of payments will be the publication of foreign exchange reserves for Mexico, South Korea, China, Indonesia and South Africa. For those concerned about the trade war, balance of trade figures will also be published for Canada, the USA, China, France and Germany.

The main political events during this week will be the Spanish election on Sunday. Surveys continue to give a plurality of voter intentions to the Socialist Party, but the conservative Popular Party, together with the radical rightwing party Vox, have been enjoying a surge in support since the elections was announced at the end of September. This will further complicate government building efforts in the aftermath of the elections.
