  • Market News Report: February 17, 2020 - February 21, 2020

    February 17, 2020, 8:24 AM

    The financial markets continued trading in a risk-on mode last week, as China virus fears were easing and economic data was supporting Fed's easy monetary policy. This week we will have another series of quite important economic data releases. Let's take a look at the details.

    The week behind

    The corona virus fears have almost disappeared last week, as investors' sentiment has been improving following record-breaking U.S. stock market rally. Tuesday's-Wednesday's Testimony from the Fed's Jerome Powell reassured global financial markets that easy monetary policy will be continued in the future. And we highlighted it in our last week's Market News Report. Thursday's Consumer Price Index came in as expected, so inflation remains very low. However, Friday's Retail Sales number wasn't that good. And the price of gold remained within a short-term uptrend last week.

    The week ahead

    What about the coming week? Probably the most important piece of economic data will be Wednesday's FOMC Meeting Minutes release. Investors will get detailed insights regarding FOMC's stance on monetary policy. We will also have series of quite important economic data releases from U.S. and the Eurozone. Be sure to check them out in the coming days. Let's take a look at key highlights:

    • Wednesday's FOMC Meeting Minutes will be the most important economic data release this week.
    • We will also get series of other quite important U.S. economic data announcements - Empire State Manufacturing Index on Tuesday, Producer Price Index, Housing Starts, Building Permits on Wednesday, Philly Fed Manufacturing Index on Thursday, and the Flash Manufacturing PMI, Flash Services PMI releases on Friday.
    • There will also be important economic data releases in the Eurozone - on Tuesday we will get the German ZEW Economic Sentiment, on Thursday the ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts will be released and on Friday we will get PMI numbers from Germany and France, among others.
    • The currency traders will surely have to focus on this week's economic data releases from Australia, Canada and the U.K.

    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: February 10, 2020 - February 14, 2020

    February 10, 2020, 6:58 AM

    The markets went risk-on last week following better-than-expected economic data releases, as China virus fears eased. This week we will have a lot of Fed talk and another pretty important set of economic data releases. Let's take a look at the details.

    The week behind

    The corona virus fears eased last week, as financial markets reacted to better-than-expected economic data releases, U.S. quarterly corporate earnings. Overall, we've seen a risk-on trading action. The stock market has reached new record highs, but gold fluctuated following recent advances. Friday's Nonfarm Payrolls, Unemployment Rate were the most important economic data releases of the week. However, they were pretty much mixed and the markets were going sideways.

    Let's take a look at 30-minute chart of the S&P 500 futures contract. The market was advancing following Friday's Nonfarm Payrolls release, but then it has quickly reversed lower. However, we didn't see that much of changes. And later in the day stocks were declining ahead of weekend's pause and some China virus uncertainty:

    The week ahead

    What about the coming week? We will have a lot of so-called Fed talk this week, including Tuesday's-Wednesday's Testimony from Powell. Then the markets will be focusing on two important economic data releases: Thursday's CPI and Friday's Retail Sales number. On Tuesday we will get the GDP number in the U.K. Investors will continue to react to quarterly earnings releases. Let's take a look at key highlights:

    • Friday's U.S. Retail Sales number will be the most important economic data release this week.
    • We will also have Jerome Powell's Testimony on Tuesday and Wednesday.
    • The U.S. Consumer Price Index will be released on Thursday.
    • Tuesday's U.K. GDP number release will be important for the British Pound currency pairs.
    • There will also be some quarterly corporate earnings releases this week.

    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: February 3, 2020 - February 7, 2020

    February 3, 2020, 7:22 AM

    Last week's economic data releases have been dimmed by China virus crisis intensity on Friday, but there was an increase in volatility following Wednesday's FOMC and the important quarterly earnings releases on Tuesday and Thursday. This week we will have Friday's Nonfarm Payrolls number. But there'll be more interesting economic news releases. Let's take a look at the details.

    The week behind

    The financial markets have been focusing on series of economic data releases last week. Wednesday's FOMC Monetary Policy Statement has been the most important one and the markets went risk-off after the release, as stocks sold off and gold rallied. But then Thursday's Advance GDP number release along with much-better-than-expected quarterly earnings announcement from Amazon reversed the sentiment once again. Not for long though. On Friday, stock markets plunged and gold rallied following increasing China virus fears.

    Let's take a look at the one-hour chart of gold price. The market has begun rallying exactly at the time of last Wednesday's FOMC Monetary Policy Statement release. So, the data brought a lot of short-term volatility, as price accelerated its uptrend following downward correction. Last week, we wrote that it would be a market mover, and it surely was.

    The week ahead

    What about the coming week? The markets will await Friday's Nonfarm Payrolls, Unemployment Rate releases. On Monday and Wednesday the PMI numbers will be released. The ECB President Lagarde will speak on Wednesday and Thursday and it will likely move the EUR/USD currency pair. There will also be some pretty important economic data releases in Australia on Monday and in Canada on Friday. Investors will continue to react to quarterly earnings releases. Let's take a look at key highlights:

    • Friday's Nonfarm Payrolls number along with the Unemployment Rate will be the most important economic data release this week.
    • On Monday we will get the ISM Manufacturing PMI and on Wednesday we will get the ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI.
    • On Wednesday and Thursday the ECB President Lagarde will speak.
    • On Monday there will also be the important RBA Rate Statement, Cash Rate release in Australia, and on Friday the Employment Change along with the Unemployment Rate will be released in Canada.
    • Last but not the least, we will get more important quarterly earnings releases this week, including Monday's after-hours report release from GOOG.

    Let's focus on the Friday's Nonfarm Payrolls number release. Where would the price of gold go following that news release? We've compiled the data since January of 2017, a 36-month-long period of time that contains of thirty seven NFP releases. The following chart shows that gold price was slightly gaining following the release. However, it was retracing its short-term advance around 10 days after the release. Additionally, the biggest advance after the NFP day was +5.06% and the biggest decline was -3.82%.

    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: January 27, 2020 - January 31, 2020

    January 27, 2020, 7:59 AM

    Not that much happened on the financial markets last week. Stocks extended their uptrend while the price of gold went sideways. Everyone seemed to be waiting for this week's Wednesday's FOMC Statement release. But there will be more interesting economic news releases in the coming days. Let's take a look at the details.

    The week behind

    The week of January 20 - January 24 has been pretty quiet on the financial markets. The stock market kept advancing ahead of quarterly earnings releases, but gold went sideways. On Thursday the Euro sold-off following the European Central Bank's Monetary Policy Statement release. Early in the week the Bank of Japan has released its Monetary Policy Statement and the Yen has been strengthening throughout the whole week. Last but not the least, Wednesday's economic data releases from Australia and Canada have triggered some meaningful currency moves.

    Let's focus on last week's Thursday's EBC's releases and their impact on the EUR/USD. The volatility much increased after the ECB's Press Conference at 8:30 a.m. The price jumped above the short-term resistance level of 1.1100 before quickly going down and reaching a local low of around 1.1040. Since then it was extending the downtrend, as it got closer to 1.1000 mark today.

    The week ahead

    What about the coming week? The financial markets will certainly focus on Wednesday's FOMC Monetary Policy Statement release. But there will also be series of the U.S. economic data releases throughout the whole week. Be sure to check the details below. We will also get quarterly earnings from the most watched: AAPL, MSFT, AMZN. Last but not the least, the Monetary Policy from BOE and Canadian GDP number. Let's take a look at key highlights:

    • Wednesday's FOMC Monetary Policy Statement release will be the most important economic event of the coming week.
    • We will also have a bunch of pretty important U.S. economic data releases: Durable Goods Orders, Consumer Confidence on Tuesday, the Advance GDP number on Thursday, Personal Spending and Personal Income along with the Chicago PMI release on Friday.
    • The quarterly earnings season is in full swing this week. We will have releases from Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, among others.
    • On Thursday, the Bank of England Monetary Policy Report will be released.
    • Canadian dollar traders will be looking ahead to Friday's GDP number release.

    Let's focus on the Wednesday's FOMC Statement release. Where would the price of gold go following that news release? We've compiled the data since January of 2017, a 36-month-long period of time that contains of twenty four FOMC Statement releases. The following chart shows that gold price was generally slightly higher following the release. But we've also had some sell-off's in gold like the one after the June 13, 2018 FOMC release. However, the gains in gold price were generally higher than losses - gold moved the most after the August 31, 2019 FOMC release, as it gained 6.3%.

    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: January 20, 2020 - January 24, 2020

    January 20, 2020, 8:01 AM

    Last week has been all about the U.S. - China trade war deal signing. The markets went almost full-on risk-on on that news. But there were more quite interesting developments, i.e. Thursday's Euro decline. Will the coming week bring some interesting news events? Let's take a look at the details.

    The week behind

    Last week's economic data releases have been dimmed by Wednesday's U.S. - China trade war deal signing event. It was a risk-on week, as stocks reached new record highs and the price of gold fluctuated following the recent reversal off a new multi-year high. But we've also got some better-than-expected U.S. economic data releases: Thursday's Retail Sales number and Friday's Housing Starts. And the Euro has been selling off vs. the dollar since Thursday's ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts release. Last but not least, the British Pound sold off after Friday's U.K. Retail Sales data release.

    Let's take a look at last Thursday's EUR/USD currency pair 30-minute chart. The ECB's Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts release came in at 7:30 a.m. And the market reversed its short-term upward course at the same moment. Since then, it declined by almost a hundred pips:

    The week ahead

    What about the coming week? The central banks will start releasing their monetary policy statements this week: Japan on Monday, Canada on Wednesday, and the Eurozone on Thursday. And the next week we will have the FOMC release. In addition, the quarterly earnings season is gaining momentum and we will have some pretty important releases in the coming days. Let's take a look at key highlights:

    • Thursday's European Central Bank's Main Refinancing Rate, Monetary Policy Statement along with the press conference will probably be the most important economic data releases this week.
    • There will also be the Bank of Japan's Monetary Policy Statement release and the press conference on Monday and Tuesday.
    • Forex traders should focus on Wednesday's important economic data releases from Australia and Canada.
    • The quarterly earnings season is gaining speed this week. We will have the releases from Netflix, Intel and American Express, among others.

    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.
