US Industrial Production and the NY Fed Empire State Manufacturing survey are the two main releases for the US. In Europe, the euro area trade balance will be the notable print. Beyond today, US PPI, German ZEW and UK CPI are the main economic reports tomorrow. Wednesday will see the release of BOE’s meeting minutes, the US CPI, and the Euro area inflation report. On Thursday, President Obama will host Poroshenko and on the data front we have Philly Fed, initial claims, and building permits to watch out for, but the biggest market moving event will surely be the Scottish independence referendum. German PPI will be the key release on what will otherwise be a relatively quiet Friday.

And a detailed breakdown from Goldman:

  • United Kingdom | CPI Core YoY (Aug): Previous 1.8%

Wednesday, September 17

Events: Speeches by Fed’s Yellen and ECB’s Mersch.

  • United States | MP Decision: We expect no change in the forward guidance, and we expect the Fed to retain language pertaining to the “considerable time” and “significant underutilization” of labor market resources. We expect the content of the Summary of Economic Projections (SEP) to show a mildly hawkish shift. As noted in the US weekly (link), we expect the “considerable time” forward guidance to stay in the September statement. Removing the language at this time would be a substantial hawkish surprise, in our view. “Significant underutilization” of labor market resources will also likely remain in the statement, despite some discomfort with this phrase apparent in the July minutes. The pace of asset purchases will be tapered by a further $10bn per month to $15bn. We expect the content of the Summary of Economic Projections (SEP)—released coincident with the FOMC statement—to show a mildly hawkish shift. Core inflation projections for 2014 may move up slightly, while unemployment projections move down. The median 2015 “dot” may shift up a hair to 1.25%. We expect the 2017 fed funds rate median—which will be released for the first time in the September SEP—to stand at 3.5%, still slightly below participants’ longer-run consensus of 3.75%. The SEP may include a clarification regarding how the dots should be interpreted in light of the Committee’s desire to maintain a target range for the fed funds rate in the future.
  • United States | CPI MoM (Aug): GS 0.00%, consensus 0.00% (1.90% YoY), previous 0.10% (2.00% YoY)
  • United States | Current Account Balance (2Q): Consensus -$114.0B, previous -$111.2B
  • Euro area | CPI Core YoY (Aug F): GS 0.30%, consensus 0.90% (0.10% MoM), previous 0.90% (-0.70% MoM)
  • Sweden | Minutes from MP Decision
  • United Kingdom | Minutes from MP Decision
  • Malaysia | CPI YoY (Aug): Consensus 3.2%, previous 3.2%
  • Thailand | MP Decision: We expect rates on hold (Benchmark Interest Rate at 2.00%, in line with consensus) as the incremental information available on economic activity since the last meeting has been positive. At the last BOT meeting on the sixth of August the monetary policy committee voted unanimously to keep rates on hold, and we expect this to remain the case for the rest of the year.
  • Poland | [MAP 3] Sold Industrial Output YoY (Aug): Consensus 0.30% (-5.80% MoM), previous 2.30% (2.00% MoM)
  • South Africa | CPI YoY (Aug): GS 6.40%, consensus 6.20% (0.30% MoM), previous 6.30% (0.80% MoM)

Events: Speeches by BOJ’s Kuroda, FDIC Chairman Gruenberg and Vice Chairman Hoenig, RBA Bulletin, ECB Announces TLTRO Allotment, Scotland Referendum on Independence (results announced Friday, September 19).

  • United States | [MAP 4] Philadelphia Fed Business Outlook (Sep): GS 24.0, consensus 23.4, previous 28
  • United States | Housing Starts MoM (Aug): GS -5.00%, consensus -4.90%, previous 15.70%
  • Norway | MP Decision: We expect rates on hold (at 1.50%) and for the Norges Bank to revise up its policy rate path by 30-50bp.
  • Sweden | GDP QoQ (2Q F): Previous 0.20% (1.90% YoY wda)
  • Switzerland | MP Decision: We expect rates on hold (SNB 3-Month Libor Target Rate at 0.00%) and for the SNB to reconfirm its minimum exchange rate target against the Euro.
  • Japan | Trade Balance (Aug): GS -¥1063.0B, consensus – ¥1027.5B, previous (r) -¥962.1B
  • New Zealand | GDP SA QoQ (2Q): GS 0.6% (3.8% YoY), consensus 0.6% (3.8% YoY), previous 1.0% (3.8% YoY)
  • Malaysia | MP Decision: We expect rates on hold (Overnight Policy Rate at 3.25%, in line with consensus), pausing before a further 25bp rate hike in November. Since the last meeting in July, inflation has continued to moderate, and at 3.2% YoY remains at the low end of BNM’s forecast range of 3%-4% for 2014.
  • Poland | Minutes from MP Decision
  • South Africa | MP Decision: We expect rates on hold (repo rate at 5.75%, in line with consensus). This is primarily based on our expectation for August inflation (on Wednesday, September 17) and the recent rates/FX market dynamics. This contrasts with our view of what would be required to address the current risk of stagflation. Hence, we expect the SARB to be more cautious but to continue to stress that it would not hesitate to hike if inflation or inflation expectations were threatened.
  • Ukraine | Industrial Production MoM (Aug): Consensus (-18.00% YoY), previous -2.20% (-12.10% YoY)
