2013 has been a Central Banks year according to our most viewed calendar pages, taking over 60% of the total. Indeed, the timid growth seen during the year among major economies, with rate cuts, forward guidance and QE tapering included, gathered investor’s attention as the main market movers. US employment figures is as usual also listed in the top 10, but mostly because of its relationship with US FED’s decisions, which only increases the initial percent.
