At the beginning of the week, investors have something of the calm before the storm as they brace for monetary events risk.
The Bank of Japan is expected to hold rates unchanged on Tuesday, the BoJ may carry the most influence when it announces its latest monetary policy decision. This is because several reports have indicated that the central bank is considering a decrease in its stimulus program. a shift in this policy will not only lead to a spike in Japanese bond yields but it will also have a global effect that will lead to further tightening in credit conditions. However, the latest inflation report indicates that the BoJ might not make any significant changes on this front and will instead try to calm markets.
The Federal Reserve is also likely to leave rates unmoved when it announces its decision on Wednesday, with economists saying that recent comments from President Donald Trump will have no impact on policy and the Fed will continue sending the message that more rate hikes are on the way.
On Thursday, the Bank of England is expected to raise rates for the first time since November, But according to the recent fall in inflation and continued Brexit uncertainty, they might deliver a hike and hint that it’s the only one expected for 2018.
On another hand, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said his country would be willing to resume trade negotiations with the U.S. if the Trump administration “took a less combative” approach to talks.
President Trump said on Twitter yesterday that he would be willing to ‘shut down’ the government if Democrats do not support funding plans for his wall along the border with Mexico. The tweet came after a meeting last week in the White House between Trump, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to discuss how to avoid an Oct. 1 shutdown, a month before elections that will determine control of Congress.
