Central Bank Meetings Schedule 2013

central banks schedule

The following table provides a schedule of central bank meetings in which an interest rate decision is going to be taken. Cut The Spread is currently covering ten central banks around the world: Bank of England, European Central Bank, US Federal Reserve, Bank of Japan, Reserve Bank of Australia, Bank of Canada, Swiss National Bank, Reserve Bank of New Zealand, Sveriges Riksbank, and Norges Bank. This list is updated for 2013.

Traders using spread betting and CFDs to get exposure to financial markets should closely monitor any changes in the key interest rates of major central banks since such changes usually produce large movements in markets. Currency pairs and crosses are largely impacted by changes in key rates. A change in key interest rates also results in a higher or lower cost of borrowing that has a direct effect in corporate future earnings.
