ATB Financial Markets Update: Will the central bank break the economy?

By ATB Financial 4 October 2022 1 min read


Join experts from ATB's Financial Markets Group for a round table discussion on interest rates and foreign exchange trends. They'll be talking about the commentary and policy projections from central bankers at the August symposium in Jackson, WY, and recent rate hikes from the FOMC and BoC. Our experts will provide the insights you need to make educated decisions in uncertain times, and offer their analysis on where we go from here. The discussion is closed out with a Q&A.


Some key points in this discussion include:

  • Can central banks tame inflation without causing a hard landing? Powell warned of pain ahead for households at his speech in Jackson on August 26th.
  • Futures curves are pricing in a rate cut in the second half of 2023. Will it happen?
  • Can CAD regain some momentum amid a strong fundamental backdrop?

Sharing their expertise is the Managing Director of Interest Rate Sales at ATB Financial Markets Group, Mark Johnson, and the Managing Director of Foreign Exchange Sales at ATB Financial Markets Group, Christopher Fricke. The Managing Director and Head of ATB Financial Markets, Robert Laird, will be moderating the presentation and discussion.
