Key Focus Ahead

Markets brace for a busy Wednesday’s European calendar, with the ECB President Draghi’s speech, the main highlight. However, the second-tier final services PMI releases from the Euro area will also offer some incentives to the EUR, GBP traders ahead of the UK services PMI report due at 0930 GMT. Also, of note remains the Eurozone retail sales report that will drop in at 1000 GMT. In early Europe, the non-monetary policy meeting of the ECB will be held at 0800 GMT and the BOE FPC statement will be published at 0830 GMT.

In the NA session, the Bank of Canada (BOC) rate decision at 1500 GMT will remain the main highlight amid a lack of the first-tier reports from Canada and the US. However, not much reaction is expected on the BOC rate decision, as the Canadian central bank is expected to stand pat after last month’s 25bps rate hike. Later on, at 1900 GMT, the Fed Beige book will be released, which could offer some fresh insights on the Fed’s monetary policy path.

Besides, the following central bankers’ speeches will also remain in focus for further trading impetus.
