Minutes from the RBA’s April meeting were released on Tuesday.
All Western markets are closed tomorrow and again on Monday, except for the United States. China is very open on Monday and will release its March quarter GDP result, along with monthly retail sales, industrial production and fixed asset investment.
The US will see a series of housing data next week along with the Fed Beige Book and the Philadelphia Fed Activity Index.
New Zealand will release its March quarter CPI, but the RBNZ was already up 50 basis points yesterday.
