Canadian rate decision: Wednesday, 14:00. The Bank of Canada has shifted its policy towards a neutral one after maintaining a hawkish bias for a long time. The BOC does not intend to raise rates – at least for now. The Ottawa based institution is projected to leave the rate unchanged at 1.75%. Governor Stephen Poloz and his colleagues have a dilemma. On the one hand, the economy is doing well with rising employment, wages, and inflation. On the other hand, the Federal Reserve is about to cut interest rates. The move by Canada’s southern neighbor probably prevents the BOC from hinting a rate hike.

FOMC Meeting Minutes: Wednesday, 18:00. Just after Powell finishes his first session on Capitol Hill, the Fed releases its meeting minutes from the June decision. Back then, the central bank officially opened the door to slashing rates. While Powell’s testimony is more up to date, it is essential to remember that the meeting minutes document is revised until the very last minute. The central bank is aware of the market impact. The same themes are of interest: inflation, growth, employment, trade, and interest rates.
