At 08:30, UK is to release its Q3 economic growth figures, while at 12:30, US is going to publish its Core Durable Goods orders data.

Volatility is expected to be very high also around the announcement of BoC’s interest rate at 14:00, and during the press conference at 15:15.

At 14:00, US Home Sales are also expected but overshadowed by BoC.
