FX markets this week will be led by central banks

Recommended Posts

The Reserve Bank of Australia kicks things off on Tuesday. Forecast to raise interest rates by another 25 basis points to 3.6%. This would be the tenth-rate hike since May last year.

At its last meeting in February, the RBA said that inflation remains too high and that further hikes would be needed.

It will be followed later in the day by Fed Chair Jerome Powell's testimony to the US Senate where he’s likely to mirror the latest Fed report to Congress on monetary policy and economy published on Friday. The report was an opportunity to reiterate what dominates the Fed debate: Labour markets remain "extremely tight", and with workers still in short supply, inflation continues to punch "well above the FOMC objective" which means that economic growth needs to slow further.

On Wednesday, the Bank of Canada could be the first of the main central banks to keep its interest rates unchanged in months, at 4.5%. At its previous monetary policy meeting, the BOC said it now wants to keep rates on hold to assess the impact of cumulative rate increases.

Then Jerome Powell's Testimony to the House Financial Services Committee and on Friday, the BoJ interest rate decision where no change is expected as this will be Governor Kuroda's last meeting. The key short-term interest rate is expected to remain at -0.1% and 10-year bond yields around 0%.

    • Yeah, there's a 20 in a hundred chances for you to make that kind of ROI these though I'm not completely ruling it out because I'm one of the few that benefitted from PEPE rise to stardom amassing a return of 10x on bitget after it got listed on binance
    • No doubt the impact of FTX crash has created a negative impression among crypto enthusiasts especially centralized exchange users. Of course FTX wasn't the first CEX to crash but its occurrence came as a shock looking at the position the crypto exchange occupies in terms of ranking and being the favourite cex for derivative trading before the sad event. This has questioned the integrity of CEXs and a lot of users have embraced DEX while others opt for a more secure and transparent CEX. Talking about security and transparency as a mechanism to make users have complete trust in the remaining CEXs, two things comes to mind and that's "Proof of Reserve" and "User Protection Fund". This are obviously a good indicator and post FTX development but how effective could this be looking at the numerous crypto currency exchanges out there. Among the top 10 ranking CEXs, only Binance and Bitget has a veriable proof of  users protection fund of $1B and $300M respectively. " Source from Nansen" Although some exchanges like OKX, Huobi and Bybit also claimed to have user protection funds but it is not publicly verifiable which of course raises eye brow about the integrity and transparency of such claim. We can't actually do without CEX because we need it for our daily trading hence the reasons why more effective measures needs to be taken to secure users funds. Though Binance and Bitget seems to be on the right path but it's also important for this CEX to declare their Proof of Liabilities because FTX also did about two audits before it collapsed. A lot of users are still skeptical keeping their assets on CEX due to fear of the unknown but could this development from Binance and Bitget restore trust and confidence back to users?
