Weekly Market Outlook: September 18th – 22nd

Weekly outlook | Econ Alerts

FOMC, BoJ, & Norges Bank policy meetings

 

Next week’s market movers

 

• The main event will probably be the FOMC policy meeting. Markets may focus on any potential changes to the “dot plot”, as well as the timing of balance sheet normalisation.

• In Japan, the BoJ is likely to keep its ultra-loose framework unchanged once again. That said, we expect a more upbeat tone from policymakers, amid encouraging economic developments.

• The Norges Bank is likely to stay put as well. We suspect officials could appear a bit more concerned, given the latest slowdown in inflation, and could push slightly back the timing of their first planned rate hike.

• We also get key economic data from the Eurozone, the UK and Canada.
