Analysts at Danske Bank, point out that in the US, we get the first estimate of GDP growth in Q1 today and will be a key release for the day.
“We expect to see a more or less unchanged GDP number for Q1 relative to Q4, 2018. However, a lower than expected number will add to the downward pressure on US Treasuries as political pressure for a rate cut will increase.”
“Today the Bank of Russia (CBR) will announce its monetary policy meeting decision on the key rate. In line with Bloomberg and Reuters consensus, we expect the CBR will keep the key rate unchanged at 7.75%. A softened ECB and Fed stance offers more room for the CBR to start cutting soon. We expect two 25bp cuts in 2019.”
