Currencies/Events to Watch this Week

  • US Preliminary GDP expectations are for a softer reading. A bullish print above expectations could potentially push the Greenback higher against weaker currencies such as the Euro and the Yen. The UoM revised data will also be important, especially in terms of the inflation expectations.
  • The UK will publish its second estimate of Q3 GDP which is expected to remain unchanged at 0.7% but there could be a possibility of a lower than expected print due to weaker PMI’s. An unchanged GDP is unlikely to bring any bullishness into the GBP pairs.
  • Canada retail sales and GDP data is on the tap this week. The CAD found renewed strength last week and an upbeat data this coming week could see the CAD rally against USD and especially the Euro.
  • Eurozone CPI data is due this week. While expectations remain unchanged both on headline and core CPI, any possible deviation could see the Euro volatility, considering Draghi’s renewed pledge to stave off deflation.
  • Overall, the week is also marked by key central banker speeches, which is expected to keep volatility alive in the Fx markets.
