Australian rate decision: Tuesday, 4:30. The Reserve Bank of Australia did not change its interest rate since 2016 but has made a dovish shift, indicating that the bias is no longer towards raising rates. The April decision is unlikely to result in a rate cut, but deeper concern about the global economy and the local housing sector could weigh.

US Durable Good Orders: Tuesday, 12:30. Orders of durable goods represent investment and are watched closely by the Fed. Back in January, headline rose by 0.3%. Excluding defense, they rose by 0.7% but excluding transportation, they slipped by 0.2%. The most important core component, excluding defense and aircraft, rose by 0.8%. It may drop now, in the publication for February. The data are still lagging due to the government shutdown.
