Canadian rate decision: Wednesday, 15:00. The Bank of Canada raised interest rates back in October and made it a “hawkish hike”. However, the Ottawa-based institution seemed more reluctant in its December meeting, stating that the economy can continue growing without further creating a lot of inflation.

FOMC Meeting Minutes: Wednesday, 19:00. The Fed raised interest rates in its last decision of 2018 but downgraded its projections for 2019 from three to two hikes. Was it a dovish hike? Markets thought otherwise as expectations stood on a deeper cut in forecasts. Moreover, Fed Chair Jerome Powell said the Fed will continue shrinking its balance sheet. Quantitative Tightening remains on “auto-pilot.” The minutes from that meeting will shed some light on the thinking of the central bank ahead of its meeting later this month.
