Abandon your Christmas shopping cart, grab a cup of coffee, and sit on your favourite couch, because next week is bringing an abundance of market events, including three monetary policy reports by the Federal Reserve, the Bank of Japan, and the Reserve Bank of Australia.

The upcoming week is shaping up to be exciting to both traders and investors alike, promising events like a Libor Rate Statement (CHF), a Monetary Policy Statement (JPY), a quarter over quarter GDP report (NZD)… and the list keeps on going.
Next week, we expect a shower of market-shifting economic events. Some examples include a Retail Sales m/m report (AUD), Manufacturing PMI report (GBP), and a Trade Balance statement (CAD). Please find the full list of events below.
