Key Economic Data For The Currency Market This Week

There are a number of major data sets which could effect the currency markets this week which are listed below. These represent what could be the most important data sets this week but a week with interest rates decisions, Housing data, GDP estimates and manufacturing numbers for Sterling it could well be another volatile week in the currency markets. In the meantime it looks likely to be a busy week for the US Dollar with some key data due (although with the partial US government shut down these data sets may be delayed) on top of these economic sets there is still the ongoing partial shut down of the US government and also the confirmation of when the Federal Reserve (FED) will start their tappering down of their asset purchasing programme.
