According to analysts at National Bank Financial, it will be a busy week for the markets, particularly in Japan with the release of March data on employment, industrial output, retail spending and corporate prices.
“The Bank of Japan’s monetary policy decision will also be closely watched, especially after recent comments from Governor Haruhiko Kuroda that the BoJ has the capability to loosen policy further if needed.”
“In Europe, a holiday-shortened week will feature potentially market-moving data including the eurozone’s consumer confidence index and Germany’s IFO index for April.”
