The Week Ahead: 13th – 17th March 2023

Overview for the Week Ahead 

One of the significant releases in the upcoming week will be the February US Consumer Price Index (CPI) and Producer Price Index (PPI) figures. 

As per the expectations, there could be a deceleration in the CPI growth to 0.4% month-on-month (m/m), as compared to the previous rate of 0.5%. However, the Core CPI is expected to remain stable at 0.4% m/m. 

The European Central Bank (ECB) meeting on Thursday will be the primary focus in Europe. 
Despite the market currently pricing in another rate hike, the ECB’s decision will be influenced by the persistently high inflation rates and hawkish comments from Lagarde.  

Moreover, indications of an economic upswing in the eurozone, despite the recent monetary policy tightening, add to the pressure on the ECB to act. 

In the UK, Labour market data, particularly wage growth and its implications for further rate hikes will be closely monitored.
