Events to Look Out for Next Week

Treasuries sold off, as did global stock markets, while the USD rallied, post FOMC, BoE and SNB. The FOMC has more work to do, and prospects for rate cuts next year have been trimmed. BoE and SNB maintained a tightening bias, with BoE in particular now expected to peak much earlier. Next week’s agenda is crucial as it includes the key PCE and US consumer confidence and Eurozone Inflation.

Consumer Confidence & New Home Sales (USD, GMT 14:00) – Consumer Confidence is expected to bounce to 107.0 after a drop to 106.1 in August from a 2-year high of 114.0 in July, versus a 6-month low of 102.5 in May and a 17-month low of 95.3 in July of 2022.
