Jarratt Davis

Special Consultant to the FPA

The first week of the month is almost always packed with important economic events, and with "Super Thursday" along with US Jobs data on tap, this week is no different. The BOE will release it's Rate Decision, Policy Statement, Bank Rate Votes ,and Inflation Report all on the same day, an event that has come to be known as "Super Thursday". These announcements will then be followed by a press conference with the BOE's Governor Carney and other MPC members. The co-main event for the week will be the US Jobs report on Friday which will not only give us important insight into the employment situation in the US, but could also sway sentiment regarding future policy actions by the Fed.
