But first… the week ahead.

To Markets

It’s a new month which makes for a busier data calendar this week, starting with CoreLogic’s monthly home value index on Tuesday followed by the RBA’s monthly policy announcement.

Westpac reckons some updates are coming on two post-COVID policy measures — QE and yield curve control (YCC) — but not until the July meeting.

Australia will get its Q1 GDP print on Wednesday and there are two more RBA board members scheduled to speak.

Globally, key data will centre around US employment figures due out on Friday night.
