    Central bank speeches this week (Yellen today)

    Here is a list which policymakers are going to speak publicly this week.

    Still today we will have:

    • Constancio and Coeure (ECB) - ESRB conference in Frankfurt (9:00)
    • Janet Yellen (Fed) - to cover economic and monetary policy issues in Philadelphia at 17:30 – this looks like a crucial moment for the idea of rate hikes coming soon in the US and thus for the USD.

    Tuesday and Wednesday

    • RBA decision on Tuesday morning (most likely rates will not be changed) - any comment from the central bank will be quite important right now, AUD is trying to establish an upward trend thanks to weak US NFP, and strong 1Q GDP in Australia; (see also our comment on monthly CPI estimate in Australia in one of the next posts) 
    • several speakers from ECB, but the Riksbank ones may have more of market moving potential with financial stability meeting on Tuesday and a paliamentary debate on monetary policy on Wednesday morning.


    • Hiroshi Nakaso (BoJ) meets entrepreneurs
    • Graeme Wheeler (RBNZ) - following the decision on rates overnight and will speak in the parliament at 2:10 am.
    • Mario Draghi (EBC) - economic forum in Brussels (08:00) - he could not get any market reaction after the ECB decision last Thurdsay so is unlikely to be a game changer
    • Stephen Poloz and Carolyn Wilkins (BoC) after the release of financial system review (16:15)



    • more from the ECB
