Central Banks Rate Decisions Calendar

In the VipTrade News Bank Calendar, you will find a meeting schedule of major central banks.

During these sessions, regulators make decisions on key interest rates and other monetary policy stances, such as quantitative easing and prudential policy (whether they should be changed). We recommend that traders keep an eye on these events as they may cause a significant impact. For more information on each specific meeting, the holding period and the financial assets affected, visit our economic calendar.

US Federal Reserve

The interest rate decision is made by the Open Market Committee (Fed’s division) eight times a year, where 12 members of the Committee vote for the rate level changes. The distribution of the votes cast is immediately known after the meeting.
