- No session on Wall Street due to Independence Day
- Retail sales from the Eurozone
- Some central bankers on the agenda
10:00 am BST - EMU retail sales for May: The consensus calls for a 0.4% MoM increase and a 1.6% YoY rise.
(tentative) - Romanian central bank rate decision: In 2018 the Romanian central bank hiked rates several times taking the main rate to 2.5% from 1.75%. However, since the mid-2018 interest rates have been stable there in spite of the fact that inflation remains above 4% (the central bank has the inflation objective of 2.5% with a 1pp deviation) and the current account deficit has widened to beyond 4% of GDP in recent months.
Central bankers’ speeches:
8:00 am BST - ECB’s Lane
10:10 am BST - ECB’s de Guindos
2:15 pm BST - Riksbank’s Floden
Keep in mind that there will be no session on Wall Street today due to the Independence Day, hence volatility may be limited.
