On Thursday, there are enough targets for the market to respond to today and tomorrow. First, of course, the Bank of England interest key rate decision. We think the bank decides to raise interest rates before the Federal Reserve. Then the support applications in the United States and a hefty series of Fed speakers. Tomorrow, the market will reflect on the inflation dates of the United States for May in the income and spending figures.
The main speakers are Fabio Panetta of the European Central Bank, and the president of the Philadelphia Fed Patrick Harker, of Atlanta Raphael Bostic, of St. Petersburg. Louis James Bullard and New York City John Williams. French business confidence in June increased from 108 to 113.
