Two ‘medium’ tier events highlight the Euro’s economic calendar on Wednesday, both of which have the potential to be market moving but are unlikely to provide any such volatility this round. Of note, the German GFK Consumer Confidence Survey (JUL) is expected unchanged at 6.5, and given the recent uptick in Euro-zone data (at least with headlines beating consensus analysts’ forecasts), risk is to the downside as it would be countertrend.

The BoE’s semiannual Financial Stability Report will detail a £26B funding hole in UK banks’ balance sheets, as first noted by the Prudential Regulation Authority last week. Similarly, the UK government will announce its spending plans for the coming fiscal year, in which £11B in deficit reduction needs to be determined. Overall, it’s a day of austerity for the UK and the British Pound.

SWISS ECONOMIC CALENDAR

Swiss data has been rather benign ever since the SNB implemented the Sf1.2000 floor for EURCHF, and the UBS Consumption Indicator (MAY), even as a ‘medium’ importance release, is unlikely to have a major impact on the Swiss Franc. Mainly, this is due to exogenous volatility onset by more global themes that are driving price action in the safe haven currencies the past week.
