RBA Policy Decision

Tuesday, October 4

04:30 BST

The RBA has said it would be a choice of 25 or 50 basis point rate hike at its meeting this week. It has to weigh the gloomier global economic outlook against even hotter inflation outlook, which has been made worse by a slumping Aussie.

What to watch: AUD, ASX

RBNZ Policy Decision

Wednesday, October 5

02:00 BST

RBNZ governor Orr described the central bank’s tightening cycle as ‘very mature’. At 3%, RBNZ has one of the highest cash rates among the major economies. We suspect a 25bp hike this time but won’t rule out a pause either.

What to watch: NZD

US nonfarm-payrolls report

Friday, October 7

13:30 BST

The jobs market has remained very strong in the US, which is underscoring the need to create a soft landing to help bring inflation back under control. If we see another stronger-than-expected NFP report, then this will likely result in renewed dollar rally.

What to watch: USD, gold
