The Chief Strategist: ECB meeting this weeks highlight

January 22, 2018

The interest meeting in The European Central Bank, ECB, Thursday is this weeks most important investor event.

Financial markets will especially listen to the forward guidance from ECB-chief Mario Draghi.

Friday's publication of US Q4 GDP figures will also attract attention.

And then the current government shutdown in the US will also be a theme.

We have seen a shutdown twelve times earlier since 1981, and historically it has not had negative consequences on the financial markets.
