Après la perspective d’une fin imminente de la hausse des taux perçue jeudi dans le communiqué de politique monétaire de la Banque centrale européenne (BCE), qui a semblé relever ses taux pour la dernière fois de 25 points de base, les investisseurs attendent prudemment this week the decisions of the central banks of Switzerland (Thursday), Norway (Thursday), the United Kingdom (Thursday), Japan (Friday) and especially the United States (Wednesday).
while a A break in US Federal Reserve (Fed) rates is expected on Wednesday., The Bank of England (BoE) should opt for a 15th increase in the cost of credit on Thursdaybut the market anticipates that this will be the last of the adjustment cycle that began in December 2021.
If the Bank of England does raise rates, we expect it to be similar to that of the ECB, and subsequent comments indicate that it is likely to do so with increases.
