A Surprisingly Busy Thursday for International Financial Markets

April 8, 2009

In light of the Passover and Easter holiday breaks, one would expect a dearth of data and other news for markets to absorb.  It will not be so.  Besides the aforementioned Bank of England policy announcement,  the Bank of Korea also makes a rate announcement, and Indonesia holds parliamentary elections tomorrow.  Industrial production data will be released by Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, and Italy.  Australia, Switzerland and Canada publish monthly labor market figures, and U.S. weekly jobless claims will be reported at their usual hour.  Canadian, British and U.S. trade statistics arrive, and Japan reports machinery orders.  Several countries releases price figures: Britain (PPI), the United States (import prices), Germany (final consumer prices), Canada (house prices), and consumer price (Holland).
