WEEK 7 (February 15 – 19): Forthcoming economic news-releases

The whole previous week was week of holidays in China, so news from China market shouldn’t be blamed for the turmoil on the markets. Janet Yellen confirmed that FOMC is still considering the raising of the rates. And bad news from overseas markets shouldn’t affect US internal financial policy. Despite her words, very small quantity of market participants (about 4 %) believe that rates will be changed in March, on the next FOMC meeting.
