Report on market news that can affect YOUR portfolio.

The regular economic calendars that are available elsewhere include ridiculous number of news that won't affect everyone to the same extent. For instance, the odds are those who trade stocks and who invest in gold for the long term, will not be affected by the same number of news, and even so, to the same extent. Can you tell which news is important for you and your portfolio? The good news is that we've done the heavy-lifting.

Early each week, Pawel Rejczak compiles the list of upcoming news, and then breaks them down by market and by investors type, to which given news are likely to be relevant. As of May 18th, we will be including the economic news report within our free Daily Gold News article.

  • Market News Report: May 18 - May 22, 2020

    May 18, 2020, 9:03 AM

    We've got another series of bad economic data releases last week following global economic lockdown. But will we get a meaningful downward correction after over-month-long rallying in stocks? This week the markets will await another Fed Chair Powell speech along with series of important economic data releases.

    The week behind

    The recent economic data releases have confirmed coronavirus impact on global economies. Last week, we've got negative (deflationary) U.S. inflation numbers and Friday's worse-than-expected Retail Sales data. However, the economic data releases seem to be priced in by the markets.

    The week ahead

    What about the coming week? Tuesday's Fed Chair Powell's Testimony will be closely watched by global financial markets. Next we will get the FOMC Meeting Minutes on Wednesday and the U.S. PMI numbers on Thursday. We will also get series of important economic data releases from the Eurozone, U.K. and Australia this week. Let's take a look at key highlights:

    • Tuesday's Fed Chair Powell Testimony will probably be the most important economic event of the coming week.
    • On Wednesday we will get the FOMC Meeting Minutes and on Thursday the U.S. Flash Manufacturing PMI will be released.
    • On Wednesday there will be speeches from the Bank of England's Governor Bailey and the Reserve Bank of Australia's Governor Lowe.
    • There will be a bunch of important economic data releases from the Eurozone: the German ZEW Economic Sentiment on Tuesday, German and French PMI's along with the ECB's Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts on Friday
    • Oil traders will also await Tuesday's and Wednesday's inventories data release.

    You will find this week's the key news releases below (EST time zone). For your convenience, we broken them down per market to which they are particularly important, so that you know what to pay extra attention to, if you have or plan to have positions in one of them. Moreover, we put the particularly important news in bold. This kind of news is what is more likely to trigger volatile movements. The news that are not in bold usually don't result in bigger intraday moves, so unless one is engaging in a particularly active form of day trading, it might be best to focus on the news that we put in bold. Of course, you are free to use the below indications as you see fit. As far as we are concerned, we are usually not engaging in any day trading during days with "bold" events on a given market. However, in case of more medium-term trades, we usually choose to be aware of the increased intraday volatility, but not change the currently opened position.

    Our Market News Report consists of two different time-related perspectives. The investors' perspective is only suitable for the long-term investments. The single economic data releases rarely cause major outlook changes. Hence, we will only see a handful of bold markings every week. On the other hand, the traders' perspective is for traders and day-traders, because the assets' prices are likely to react on a single piece of economic data. So, there will be a lot more bold markings on potentially market-moving news every week.

    Summing up, the financial markets will likely continue to react to news about globally spreading coronavirus in the near future. However, if you're an investor and not a trader, you should pay extra attention to Tuesday's Fed Chair Powell Testimony. In addition, there will be Central Bank Governors' speeches from Australia and the U.K this week.

    Today's Market News Report is the last in its current form. We are going to include the economic news report within our free Daily Gold News article.

  • Market News Report: May 11 - May 15, 2020

    May 11, 2020, 9:22 AM

    Last week's economic data releases have basically confirmed coronavirus damage to global economies. The U.S. Unemployment Rate hit almost 15%, as Friday's monthly jobs data release showed. But will we get a meaningful downward correction following over-month-long rally in stocks? This week the markets will await Wednesday's Fed Chair Powell speech.

    The week behind

    Last week's economic data have revealed further coronavirus impact on global economies. The U.S. monthly jobs data came out on Friday and the Unemployment Rate got close to 15% from the previous value of 4.4%! However, the recent economic data releases seem to be very much priced in by the markets. And Tuesday's ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI release has been better than expected.

    The week ahead

    What about the coming week? On Wednesday there will be a speech from the Fed Chair Jerome Powell. Friday's U.S. Retail Sales will likely be very closely watched by the markets. On Wednesday we will get some important economic data releases from the Eurozone and Australia. Let's take a look at key highlights:

    • Wednesday's Fed Chair Powell Speech will probably be the most important economic event of the coming week.
    • On Friday we will get the U.S. Retail Sales number for the previous month.
    • Friday's German GDP number release will be closely watched by the Euro currency traders.
    • The other important economic data releases this week include Wednesday's U.K.'s GDP number and Australia's Employment Change along with the Unemployment Rate
    • Oil traders will also await Tuesday's and Wednesday's inventories data release.

    You will find this week's the key news releases below (EST time zone). For your convenience, we broken them down per market to which they are particularly important, so that you know what to pay extra attention to, if you have or plan to have positions in one of them.

  • Market News Report: May 4 - May 8, 2020

    May 4, 2020, 8:17 AM

    The recent set of economic data releases have showed us more coronavirus damage to global economies. Last week we've seen worse than expected CB Consumer Sentiment, Advance GDP, Chicago PMI numbers. But Friday's ISM Manufacturing PMI number was an exception, as it slightly surpassed forecasts. The markets went risk-off in the middle of last week. Will we get a meaningful downward correction? This week the markets will await Friday's U.S. monthly jobs data release.

    The week behind

    Last week's Wednesday's FOMC Interest Rate and Monetary Policy update release wasn't much of a game-changer for the markets. And the other economic data releases have basically confirmed the coronavirus negative impact on global economies again. Tuesday's CB Consumer Confidence, Wednesday's Advance GDP, Thursday's Chicago PMI were all worse than expected. However, Friday's ISM Manufacturing PMI has been slightly better than expected.

    The week ahead

    What about the coming week? The markets' attention will certainly focus on Friday's U.S. Nonfarm Payrolls and the Unemployment Rate release. On Tuesday we will get the ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI, on Wednesday the ADP Non-Farm Employment Change and on Thursday the Unemployment Claims will be released. Forex traders will be waiting for Tuesday's and Thursday's monetary policy updates in Australia, Friday's monthly jobs data from Canada and Thursday's Bank of England's Monetary Policy Report release. Let's take a look at key highlights:

    • On Friday we will get the important monthly jobs data release: Nonfarm Payrolls along with the Unemployment Rate.
    • The other important U.S. economic data releases this week include ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI, ADP Non-Farm Employment Change and the Unemployment Claims.
    • We will also get some important economic news releases from Australia, Canada and the U.K. this week.
    • Oil traders will also await Tuesday's and Wednesday's inventories data release.

    You will find this week's the key news releases below (EST time zone). For your convenience, we broken them down per market to which they are particularly important, so that you know what to pay extra attention to, if you have or plan to have positions in one of them. Moreover, we put the particularly important news in bold. This kind of news is what is more likely to trigger volatile movements. The news that are not in bold usually don't result in bigger intraday moves, so unless one is engaging in a particularly active form of day trading, it might be best to focus on the news that we put in bold. Of course, you are free to use the below indications as you see fit. As far as we are concerned, we are usually not engaging in any day trading during days with "bold" events on a given market. However, in case of more medium-term trades, we usually choose to be aware of the increased intraday volatility, but not change the currently opened position.

    Our Market News Report consists of two different time-related perspectives. The investors' perspective is only suitable for the long-term investments. The single economic data releases rarely cause major outlook changes. Hence, we will only see a handful of bold markings every week. On the other hand, the traders' perspective is for traders and day-traders, because the assets' prices are likely to react on a single piece of economic data. So, there will be a lot more bold markings on potentially market-moving news every week.

  • Market News Report: April 27, 2020 - May 1, 2020

    April 27, 2020, 7:46 AM

    Last week's economic data releases have revealed more coronavirus damage to the economy. Thursday's weekly Unemployment Claims number has surpassed 4 million, but it was lower than the week before. We've also seen some weak PMI numbers from different countries. But the markets remained relatively calm last week, as investors continued buying stocks. This week we will get the important release from Fed.

    The week behind

    Last week's economic data releases have basically confirmed the coronavirus negative impact on global economies. PMI numbers from the U.S., Eurozone and U.K. were worse than expected. The U.S. Unemployment Claims remained above 4 million. And oil inventories numbers were big once again. However, the markets remained relatively very calm, as stocks were slowly getting back to their recent local highs.

    The week ahead

    What about the coming week? Investors will await Wednesday's FOMC Rate Decision release along with the Press Conference. Then we will have series of important U.S. economic data releases throughout the whole week. On Thursday the European Central Bank will decide on monetary policy of the Eurozone. We will also have some important economic data releases from Australia, Canada and China. Let's take a look at key highlights:

    • Wednesday's FOMC Interest Rate and Monetary Policy release along with the Press Conference will be the most important economic data announcement of the coming week.
    • We will also get the CB Consumer Confidence number on Tuesday, Advance GDP on Wednesday, Chicago PMI on Thursday and the ISM Manufacturing PMI on Friday.
    • On Thursday there will be the ECB's Main Refinancing Rate and Monetary Policy Statement release along with the Press Conference.
    • The other important economic data releases include Tuesday's Australian CPI number, Wednesday's China's Manufacturing PMI and Thursday's Canadian GDP number.
    • Oil traders will also await Tuesday's and Wednesday's inventories data release.

    You will find this week's the key news releases below (EST time zone).
