Week ahead Calendar – 02/04/2012 to 06/04/2012: Spanish Auction Fears, PMIs and ECB Council Meeting

Once again, please find below a list of the eventful days ahead. The main sources are Unicredit’s Weekly FocusForex Trading weekly calendar, the EU’s general calendar, the EU’s national issuance calendar and many others,  all of which I advise you to consult directly. I found Unicredit’s to be the most complete and accurate freely available one, so I present it to you below (many thanks to them and specially to Nikolaus Kei for compiling this).

The main events for the coming week are a the PMI releases, on Monday, the meeting of the governing council of the ECB and (among others) the Spanish sovereign bond auction on Wednesday. The PMI’s will give analysts an insight into the performance of the economy, separate from GDP estimates and the ECB council is set to provide insights about the out of the intervention of the ECB. No MRO rate change is expected. The Spanish bond auction will be a crucial event for sovereign bond markets. It will follow two relatively unsuccessful bill auctions (here and here) and will provide an insight into the fiscal stability of Spain, in particular, and the periphery in general.
