Macro data, crypto, and blockchain events this week

A crucial data point is ahead

By Tiffany Wang, WOO Network Analyst

The BOE hiked 25bps in the August meeting, and the market anticipates another hike. Alongside recent Fed and ECB meetings last week, central banks are entering the end of the hiking cycle. The next central bank meetings will be in September, so there will be two more data points before the meeting.

The surge in long-end US bond yields is negatively impacting risk assets, partly due to the US downgrade to AA rating by Fitch. The temporary resolution of the debt ceiling has raised concerns, as the government’s increased spending since COVID creates worries about fiscal sustainability in the long run. Additionally, the BOJ’s relaxation of the YCC band from 50bps to 1% contributed to the rise in long-end yields. Lastly, investors anticipate higher long-term inflation premiums as central banks approach the end of the hiking cycle and adopt a more dovish stance.

The upcoming crucial data point is the US CPI on August 10th.
