    Thursday is a busy day with plenty of market movers, so let's take a closer look.
    Starting things off at 6 AM is the German GfK Consumer Confidence for July. The Index inched even higher in June as consumers remain optimistic about their own income and economic growth.
    UK Mortgage Approvals for May follow at 8:30. The number of approvals has been declining for the past 3 months and now stands at its lowest level since late 2016.
    The closely watched preliminary reading of German June CPI is out at noon. The annual inflation eased by half a percentage point in May as energy and services prices grew at a slower pace.
    Two high importance releases regarding the US economy follow at 12:30 PM GMT, including the final reading of first quarter GDP. The preliminary estimate puts the annualised quarterly growth at 1.2%, which is actually an improvement from the 1.1% increase a year ago.
    The weekly update on Jobless Claims is out at the same time. Initial claims grew by 3 thousand during the week ending June 17 while the continuing claims jumped by 8 thousand during the week ending June 10.
    The next item on the schedule comes at 11:45 in the evening, and it's the New Zealand Building Permits for May. The number of permits dropped by 7.6% in April, but the report noted the Easter holiday was responsible for at least some of the drop.
    UK GfK Consumer Confidence for June will be available at 11:01. May data surprised on the upside as the Index rose to a 4-month high, but that was before the surprise outcome of the general election.
    Two pieces of May data from Japan follow at 11:30, including the closely watched CPI. The annual inflation remains low, and the April data came in weaker than expected, but at least it has stood in the positive territory for the past 4 months.
    Jobless rate has stood at the same low level for the past 3 months, but this report also includes the household spending data, and it has been declining for the past 14 months.
    Japanese Preliminary Industrial Production for May is out at 11:50. Output rebounded in April, reversing a 1.9% drop the previous month.
    Commodity currency traders may want to keep an eye on Chinese June PMI, which comes at 1 AM. The manufacturing Index stood unchanged in May, which was actually better than expected as markets had anticipated a decline, whereas the Non-Manufacturing PMI rebounded from the 7-month low reached in April.
    And Japanese Housing Starts for May will be release at 5 o'clock in the morning. April data surprised very much on the upside, showing a strong gain instead of the anticipated decline.

    Several central bank governors are heading to a joint meeting in Portugal; let's find out more with the Economic Calendar.
    But first, there's the Swiss UBS Consumption Indicator for May. The Index inched slightly higher in April as gains in retail reversed a decline in new car registrations.
    Coming up next at 12:30 PM GMT is the US Goods Trade Balance for May. Trade deficit widened in April as exports went down and imports picked up.
    So the closely watched panel discussion which brings together central bank governors begins at 1:30. In particular, ECB President Mario Draghi, Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda, Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz as well as his predecessor and the current Bank of England Governor Mark Carney will all be joining in at the ECB forum on central banking in Sintra, Portugal. With so many policy makers in one place, some volatility could be expected, or at least it should make for interesting viewing.
    US Pending Home Sales for May are out at 2. Sales have been declining for the past two months as supply remains a problem; moreover, home prices have been rising faster than the incomes of prospective buyers.
    Japanese Preliminary Retail Sales for May follow at 11:50 in the evening. April data surprised on the upside as the annual growth accelerated from 2.1% the previous month.
    And New Zealand ANZ Business Confidence for June will be available at 1 AM. The Index gained almost 4 points in May as manufacturing, retail and agriculture sectors all reported increased optimism.

    Tuesday brings a number of speeches from central bank governors, and they definitely are worth a closer look.
    The first speech is scheduled at 8 AM, when ECB President Mario Draghi will be speaking at the European Central Bank forum on central banking in Sintra, Portugal.
    Bank of England will release its latest Financial Stability Report at half past 9, and Governor Mark Carney will hold a press conference discussing the report half an hour later. Both are high importance events, especially because there have been several hawkish dissenters among the policy makers.
    Coming up next at 1 PM GMT is the US S&P Home Price Index for April. Prices have been rising at a steady pace for the past few months, and the March gain was the strongest in almost 3 years.
    US Consumer Confidence Index for June follows at 2. The Index does remain elevated, but it has been declining more than anticipated for 2 months straight.
    And Fed Chair Janet Yellen will be speaking at the British Academy in London at 5. She will be discussing the global economic issues, and audience questions are expected, which could lead to some volatility.

    Friday is the Purchasing Managers Indices day; let's take a closer look.
    The preliminary June PMIs from several Euro Zone countries are out first thing in the morning as the French data are due at 7, German indices follow half an hour later and the currency bloc PMIs are scheduled at 8. The manufacturing PMI grew more than expected in May, driven by particularly strong performance in Germany, whereas the services PMI saw little change.
    Coming up next at 12:30 PM GMT is a high importance release for all the Loonie Dollar traders, namely, the Canadian May CPI. The annual inflation rate inched slightly lower in April on the back of falling food prices.

    And US New Home Sales for May will be available at 2. Now, sales had soared to a 10-year high so some decline was anticipated in April; still, the drop was stronger than anticipated.

    You're watching the Economic Calendar for Tuesday, the 6th of June. Let's see which news releases could move the currency markets.
    Euro Zone Investor Confidence for June is up first at 8:30, and the May data was quite a surprise as the Index soared to a 10-year high; in particular, investors are increasingly optimistic in their assessment of the current situation.
    Euro Zone Retail Sales for April follow at 9. Sales have been growing for the past three months, and the March gain was higher than anticipated.
    Coming up next at 2 PM GMT are the US JOLTS Job Openings for April. Now, the US labour market has been a strong performer, and March data did reflect it, but it's probably a good idea to remember that the May employment report was disappointingly weak.
    Canadian May Ivey PMI is out at the same time. The Index hit a 15-month high in April, driven by strong price growth.
    New Zealand first quarter manufacturing sales are scheduled at 10:45 in the evening. Sales continued growing at the end of 2016, mostly on the back of higher meat and dairy sales.
    Australian Performance of Construction Index for May comes at 11:30. The Index has stood in the positive territory for past 3 months, which is a welcome change from 4 months of decline.
    Another Australian news publication, and a highly anticipated one, is out at 1:30 AM, and it's the first quarter Australian GDP. Australian economy rebounded in the fourth quarter from the half a percent drop the previous period.
    And Japanese Preliminary Leading Index for April concludes the schedule at 5. The Index grew by point 7 points in March and now stands at its highest level in almost 2 years.
    That's all for Tuesday's Economic Calendar. I'm Celeste Skinner and we'll be back with the next overview of news releases for Wednesday. See you then.

    You're watching the Economic Calendar for Monday, the 5th of June. Here's a rundown of the most important news releases.
    The schedule actually begins at 11:30 PM on Sunday for Aussie Dollar traders, as Australian Performance of Service Index for May is released at this time. The Index has been recovering for the past two months, having slipped in the negative territory in February.
    Markets will be closed on Monday across several European countries, including Germany, France, and Switzerland, as Whit Monday is observed.
    Japanese Services PMI for May is out at half past midnight. The Index eased in April from the 19-month high it reached a month ago.
    Chinese Caixin Services PMI for May will be available at 1:45. The April data was somewhat disappointing as the Index posted its fourth consecutive monthly decline.
    UK Services PMI for May follows at 8:30, and the British service sector actually grew more than anticipated in April, hitting a 5-month high.
    Coming up next at 2 PM GMT is the closely watched US ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI for May. The Index rebounded strongly in April as new orders saw especially notable growth.
    US Factory Orders for April are out at the same time, and this particular piece of data actually surprised on the downside in March, following two months of better-than-expected growth.
    There's little on the schedule until 11:01 in the evening, when the UK BRC Like-for-Like Sales for May are released. Sales returned to growth in April, following three months of decline.
    And a high importance event for Aussie Dollar traders is out at 4:30 AM, when the Reserve Bank of Australia will release its latest Monetary Policy Statement. Traders are not anticipating any rate hikes, but they will be scrutinising the commentary on the economic outlook.
    I'm Kiays Khalil and that's all for Monday's Economic Calendar. Check back in for the next overview of news releases for Tuesday. Goodbye.
