- FED Interest Rate Decision – US central bank interest rates
The Federal Funds Rate is the interest that banks charge each other for overnight loans. This US base rate is determined by the market and is not explicitly imposed by the Fed. By withdrawing or adding funds to the money supply, the FED tries to align the effective federal funds rate to the rate it aims to achieve.
When the Fed’s monetary policy changes the base rate, it usually affects the height of the interest rate on various products, such as mortgages, loans and interest on savings. This change is scheduled to be decided on Wednesday 15 June and its strategy will undoubtedly set a precedent for global economic action.

- ECB CPI 7.5% (Forecast) / 8.1% (Previous)
The main task of the ECB is to maintain price stability.
In the euro area, the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP) is used to measure consumer price inflation. That means the change over time in the prices of consumer goods and services purchased by euro area households.
It is “harmonised” because all the countries in the European Union follow the same methodology. This ensures that the data for one country can be compared with the data for another.
