Week ahead for Australia and New Zealand – a lot on the agenda

Just scanning
through the list of what’s to come from the RBA and also data
releases (just the biggies, there are others):

Tuesday’s National
Australia Bank Business Survey for February

  • Business confidence and conditions … and all the details of course. Both are doing well …. wage growth, not so much

  • RBA speaker — Michele Bullock, Assistant Governor (Financial System)
  • Australian housing
    finance
    data for January

Wednesday:

  • While not Australia or NZ ... China data for February — industrial production, retail sales and more
  • Westpac — Melbourne Institute February Australian Consumer Sentiment (remember February
    and the equity market plunge … the survey was conducted while this
    was going on, so expect some nail-biting to be evident in the
    results)
  • Reserve Bank of Australia speaker  — Christopher Kent, Assistant Governor (Financial Markets), at the
    KangaNews DCM Summit (watch this one for intrestinterest rate remarks) 

Thursday

  • NZ Q4 GDP — late 2017 showed some slowing of the New Zealand economy … but still growing

Friday 

  • Speech by RBA Deputy Governor Guy Debelle, at the Financial Risk Day. The topic is risk and return
    in a low rate environment; of the 3 RBA speeches this week, this one will be the most closely heeded. He is the dep gov, after all.
