On the Monetary Policy front there's the US and Japan announcing their (non) decisions, and it will be interesting to read into the tone and content of their announcements. There's also meeting minutes due from the RBA (one of the only developed nation central banks on the tightening path) and the BoE (one of the only developed nation central banks that might need to do a whole lot more!).
There's also a lot of CPI figures out so it will be an interesting week in terms of an inflation update; particularly in the US and EU. On international flows, there's China with an FDI update, and the EU and US also provide updates on their current account positions.
Overall the most interesting stuff is probably going to come out of the monetary policy announcements (so it's quite fitting that the CPI data is also out this week). Pay particular attention to what is said in these announcements, and how it differs (if at all) from previous announcements.
Stay tuned for updates during the week...
