Speculation over whether the Fed would hike interest rates in June or not caused significant dollar movements last week. Whether the rate hike probabilities shift significantly again will now depend on three key data releases between now and the FOMC’s next meeting on Jun 14. These include the latest ISM services PMI for May, due on Monday, and last month’s inflation figures due on 13th June.

RBA rate decision

Tuesday, June 6

Australia’s consumer prices rose 6.8% year-over-year in April on a jump in fuel prices and strong gains in housing. This was well above expectations and suggest sticky inflation will likely keep pressure on the central bank. However, soft data out of China has kept the AUD under pressure. Will that change going forward?

BOC rate decision

Wednesday, June 7

15:00 BST

At this meeting, we are doubtful the BoC will deliver a hike as it will want to await more data to support the case for a hike. The BoC lifted rates to the current 4.5% at its January 25 meeting and has since sat pat for the next two meetings in March and April. But improving Canadian data suggests the central bank could provide an additional 25 bps in the upcoming months.

      Economic calendar FAQ

      What is an economic calendar?

      Why should I use an economic calendar?

      An economic calendar enables you to plan your trading around key market-moving events. This is important for any trader, as economic releases can quickly change market conditions and may throw your existing strategy off course.

      Some traders steer of the markets entirely when economic data is due to be released; others see the heightened volatility as the best time to trade. Either way, knowing precisely when events are set to land is key to trading successfully.
