Financial and Economic Updates!

The latest edition of RBC Economics Research’s “Financial Markets Monthly” with updated financial market forecasts…… 

Highlights from this month’s Financial Markets Monthly: 

•             Oil price decline roiled financial markets resulting in a sharply lower government bond yields; we have adjusted our interest rate forecasts to take this into account.

•             Economic data are diverging with the US powering along while Europe stays weak.

•             Fed likely to raise funds target mid-year, with lower energy costs being simulative for growth.

•             Bank of Canada views the energy price decline as putting a "weight" on economic activity with a more fulsome assessment expected in the upcoming Monetary Policy Report.

•             ECB is expected to announce a broadening out of its asset purchase program keeping its aim on supporting growth and heading off deflation.
