Let's look at the news event's we've got lining up this week...
The RBA did not make any changes to interest rates in the latest policy decision.

The transcript of their meeting should provide more insight on why they decided to make these adjustments and whether or not they’re considering tightening anytime soon.

Lagarde may also clarify the end of the PEPP (pandemic emergency purchase programme) next year could be followed by regular asset purchases, which would basically be another round of quantitative easing.
We're expecting to see another round of declines for manufacturing PMI's in the eurozone while the services sector could be showing improvements.
France could print a dip in its July flash manufacturing PMI from 59.0 to 58.1 and an increase from 57.8 to 58.7 for its services PMI.
Germany could see its manufacturing PMI dip from 65.1 to 64.7 and its services PMI climb from 57.5 to 59.4.
This should be enough to bring the region’s flash manufacturing PMI down from 63.4 to 62.6 and the flash services PMI up from 58.3 to 59.4 this month.
