Monetary Policy Forecasts for Major Economies


The Global-View.com Monetary Policy Outlook is prepared weekly by the trading professionals at GVI Forex. For information on the GVI Forex Service Click Here

Most major central banks have moved to or are about to embark on a quantitative easing (QE) policy. A policy of QE means that instead of targeting an interest or inflation rate that the bank targets an amount of reserves in the banking system. The goal of QE is to inject reserves in the system sufficient to make credit available to all potential borrowers.

Upcoming Decisions

Bank of Canada- Tuesday January 20, 2009

  • Market expects a -50bps rate cut to 1.00%
  • Energy economy hit hard by slowing U.S. economy.
  • BOC being pushed into a Quantitative Easing posture.
  • Inflation no issue.

    Bank of Japan- Thursday January 22, 2009

  • BOJ target rate (0.10%) already virtually at zero. No rate cut is possible.
  • Japan invented Quantitative Easing.

    CANADA

    GVI Bank of Canada Policy Meeting Preview

    • Decision: January 20, 2008 at 14:00 GMT.
    • BOC Overnight Target Rate: 1.50%
    • Expected Decision: -50bps.
    • The Bank of Canada continues to participate in policy ease. An additional -50bp rate cut on January 20 is probable.

      BANK OF CANADA Policy Objective: The Bank of Canada aims to keep inflation at the 2 per cent target, the midpoint of the 1 to 3 per cent inflation-control target range. This target is expressed in terms of total CPI inflation, but the Bank uses a measure of core inflation as an operational guide. Core inflation provides a better measure of the underlying trend of inflation and tends to be a better predictor of future changes in the total CPI.
