‘Risk Off’ Sentiment 

Another volatile week is expected for the markets as we see a noticeable shift towards safe-haven assets, a trend that began to solidify at the close of last week. This shift is largely influenced by growing ‘risk-off’ sentiment among investors, after political turmoil through Europe and FOMC rate cut risks. This week will be shaped by critical central bank decisions from Australia, Switzerland, and the UK.

Currency Strength Meter

The currency strength meter highlights the ‘risk off’ sentiment the market is moving towards with CHF, USD and JPY finding strength. The NZD and CHF remain the strongest overall with the EUR, JPY and CAD being significantly weaker.

UK Inflation 

In the UK, all eyes are on the Bank of England (BoE) as it approaches its rate announcement. With inflation predicted to align with the BoE’s target of 2%, there’s a general consensus that the central bank will maintain its interest rate at the current 5.25%. A change in the MPC vote will further influence ideas that the BoE is ready to cut rates. The vote currently stands at 0-2-7, however a change in members that see a cut could influence the GBP this week. 

RBA To Hold Rates

Across the globe in Australia, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) is also expected to hold its interest rates steady at 4.35%. The RBA’s decision to keep rates unchanged reflects a broader strategy of sustaining higher rates for an extended period to manage economic stability. However, in the context of the market’s preference for safe-haven assets, this dovish outlook might not bode well for the Australian Dollar. As traders shy away from riskier assets, the AUD could face downward pressure.

PMI Data 

Adding to the week’s volatility, Friday brings significant economic data with the release of Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) reports from Europe, the UK, and the US. These indicators are crucial for gauging economic health and can heavily influence market sentiment. In the Euro area, forecasts suggest a slight uptick in growth, which could be a welcome development after last week’s market sell-off spurred by political unrest. Positive PMI figures could provide a much-needed boost to the Euro, potentially reversing recent bearish trends.
