It might be a quiet start to a busy week, with the RBA and ECB meeting, and the US releases its CPI numbers at the end of the week. NAB’s Skye Masters says there’s divided opinion on how far the RBA will push tomorrow – anywhere from 25 to 50 basis points. We know the ECB is moving slower, but we can expect they’ll give further signals about when rates will rise and by how much. It all depends on the inflation outlook, of course, with CPI for the US out on Friday. Meanwhile, markets have been looking for any evidence that price rises might have peaked, but with the uncertainty over oil, the war and China’s lockdowns, it’s a bold call to say we are there yet.
