Market Week Ahead: Monetary Policy Meeting, Retail Sales, etc.

The broad US dollar remained under pressure on Friday and will end this week on a bearish note as investors digest the Bank of England’s (BOE) unexpected interest rate hike and the European Central Bank’s (ECB) shift to a more hawkish attitude.

Looking ahead to the coming week, the series of retail sales, the minutes of the Monetary Policy Meeting, and CB Consumer Confidence are likely to generate enough news to keep the markets moving. Apart from that, geopolitical and Omicron coronavirus variant headlines will be actively monitored, as they may significantly determine market risk levels.
