Major Financial Trading News that could impact the financial world this week

Before we dive straight into it lets have a quick brief into some of the Forex news events that we should be weary of this week.

Both the ECB (European Central Bank) and the Federal Reserve will dominate the markets this week when it comes to Financial Markets. In this week as a Forex trader, you should be looking at only the major pairs and that to Euro and the Yen and get mastery over your currency pairs. The big question is will the Fed increase the interest rates and will this be the last one for the year? All comes down to the statement at 19:00 GMT on Wednesday the 13th of June 2017.


The Markets have already priced in this rate hike in all fairness, but we must look at the statement and figure out whether there shall be a mention of any further rate hikes and if so when and look at the path for the rest of the year.

The ECB is expected to leave rates unchanged after its meeting this week on Thursday but markets we may get a policy update regarding Quantitative Easing.


If you are new to reading our blog content from time to time we tend to send out consumer alerts and, in this case, even if you are not trading what should you be aware of and what are the top financial tips for June 2018.

  • Switch to a fixed rate mortgage from a variable or adjustable rate mortgage.

If you still have not considered this, it should be a top priority of yours so that you will not get impacted by further interest rate hikes. Let’s take an example of if you lock in a 30 year fixed deal your interest rate will not jump from 4.50 to 4.75 or 5 Percent.

  • Pay off credit card debt

Anyone with debt will see an increase in their monthly bill within the next cycle or two. The best way to combat this, as well as the effect of future rate hikes, is to pay off as much outstanding debt as possible now.

The Fed is back and will meet again this week with the Roundtable conference with the fed chairman Jerome Powell. Are there any significant surprises not really it is an anticipated rate hike and Platinum Traders believe there could be another short-term rate hike.

The May meeting of the FOMC left interest rates unchanged, after having increased them previously in March.

Statement from the previous statement:

“In view of realized and expected labour market conditions and inflation, the Committee decided to maintain the target range for the federal funds rate at 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 percent,” the Fed said in a statement after the meeting. “The stance of monetary policy remains accommodative, thereby supporting strong labour market conditions and a sustained return to 2 percent inflation.”

The Central Bank had stated that it was targeting an inflation rate of 2 percent at the beginning of the year, and after the meeting, it said: “On a 12-month basis, both overall inflation and inflation for items other than food and energy have moved close to 2 percent.”

The FOMC forecast report covers GDP, the PCE price index, the unemployment rate, and forecasts of the next change in the Fed funds rate and the expected rate at the end of the next two years. The FOMC forecasts are compiled based on individual outlooks from each Fed governor and District president.
