Weekly Economic & Political Timeline
This week will have a much lighter news agenda than last week. The agenda will be dominated by only a few items of high-impact U.S. data towards the end of the week, as well as the monthly reporting from the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. Therefore, volatility this week should be considerably lower than it was last week.
The market will probably be most active on Thursday and Friday.
It will be a public holiday in Australia and Canada on Monday and in Japan on Friday.
It will be a fairly normal week for the greenback, starting on Wednesday with a release Crude Oil Inventories data. Thursday will bring releases of PPI and Unemployment Claims data. Finally, on Friday we will get CPI numbers.
New Zealand Dollar
