Key Events in the Week Ahead 5/11-12-2022

Key Events week ISM Services USDJPY traders

Interest rate policy will be on center stage for one more week. Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) and the Bank of Canada (BAC) are expected to hike interest rates again but at a slower pace. In the USA, the focus will be on the ISM services survey on Monday, and the producer prices (PPI) on Friday as the blackout period starts ahead of the next important FOMC on December 13 and 14. Most analysts now see a terminal rate at 5%-5.25%, but the strong labour market now in my opinion might open the way for a higher terminal rate.

Monday, December 5

The week starts with the November ISM Services index. The expectations are at 53.7, the previous reading was at 54.4.  The factory orders are expected at 0.7%.
