  • Market News Report: January 13, 2020 - January 17, 2020

    January 13, 2020, 9:13 AM

    The Middle East crisis continued to escalate in the first half of last week. But then the fears have diminished and investors were awaiting Friday's monthly jobs data release. Will the coming week bring some interesting news events? Let's take a look at the details.

    The week behind

    We've seen more volatility last week as financial markets have been reacting to disturbing news from Iran. The price of gold jumped to multi-year record high in the first half of the week and stocks corrected some of their recent run-up. But the markets reversed its course very quickly as investors shrugged off Iran fears. Then they awaited Friday's U.S. monthly jobs data release. The numbers were worse than expected, so we saw some "risk-off" trading action again on Friday. Last week we underlined the economic data releases from Canada and it was worth watching those news, as the led to a jump in USD/CAD currency pair.

    Let's take a look at Friday's gold price action. The market jumped at the moment of data release but then it quickly retraced the whole advance. However, it continued higher into the weekly close. So worse-than-expected NFP data triggered an intraday advance in gold price:

    But what is the most likely short-term path for the price of gold in a few trading days after the monthly Nonfarm Payrolls number release? We've compiled the data since January of 2017, a 36-month-long period of time. The following chart shows that gold price was generally slightly gaining following the NFP release:

    The week ahead

    What about the coming week? Thursday's U.S. Retail Sales number will probably be the most important data release this week. We will get China's GDP data and the ECB releases on the same day. On Tuesday, the BOJ Governor Kuroda will speak and it will likely be closely watched by investors across all assets. The stock markets may focus on quarterly earnings releases from the U.S. banks. Let's take a look at key highlights:

    • The markets should focus on Thursday's economic data releases this week: the Retail Sales number in U.S. and the GDP in China.
    • On Thursday we will also get some important news from the Eurozone: the ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts and a speech from ECB President Lagarde.
    • The Earnings Season starts this week. We will mainly see quarterly earnings from banks in the coming days.
    • The Bank of Japan Governor Kuroda will speak on Tuesday in the evening.
    • There will also be series of economic data releases from the U.K. 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. 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 6, 2020 - January 10, 2020

    January 6, 2020, 7:37 AM

    The New Year's Eve week has been quite nervous for the financial markets. Last days of 2019 brought declines in the risk-on assets, but then the sentiment greatly improved on Thursday. Not for long, as the Middle East crisis erupted later in the day... Will the coming week bring some interesting news events? Let's take a look at the details.

    The week behind

    It has been a pretty volatile week for the financial markets. The last days of 2019 brought pull-back in stocks, oil and an advance in gold. The data releases were mixed, so it was all about year's end "window dressing" trading action. Then came the first trading day of 2020 - Thursday, January 3. The economic data releases came out along with expectations pushing risk-on assets prices much higher. But later in the day news from Iraq significantly lowered investors' sentiment. Friday's economic data releases seemed less relevant, as everyone's attention drifted towards the Middle East news.

    The week ahead

    What about the coming week? We will certainly see more U.S. - Iran/Iraq conflict updates that will affect the markets in the near future. What about the scheduled economic data releases? The most important news will be Friday's monthly jobs data release in the U.S., preceded by Wednesday's ADP number. We will also have the ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI and inflation data from the Eurozone on Tuesday. The forex traders will likely pay attention to this week's series of economic data releases from Australia. There will also be the Bank of Canada Governor Poloz speech on Thursday followed by Friday's monthly jobs data release in Canada. Let's take a look at key highlights:

    • Friday's U.S. Non-farm Payrolls along with the Unemployment Rate will be the most important economic data releases in the coming week.
    • The mentioned monthly jobs data release will be preceded by Wednesday's ADP Non-Farm Employment Change release.
    • On Tuesday we will get the ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI and the Eurozone's CPI number.
    • On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday there will be some important economic data releases from Australia, and on Thursday and Friday we will await the releases from Canada.

    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: December 30, 2019 - January 3, 2020

    December 30, 2019, 7:03 AM

    It was not surprising that the last week was pretty quiet on the financial markets. We saw a positive trading action again as stocks, oil continued their uptrend. Will the coming week bring some interesting news events? Let's take a look at the details.

    The week behind

    The financial markets were closed in the middle of last week. And there weren't any important economic data releases. Hence, it was a very quiet week. However, the markets remained in a risk-on mode as stocks extended their uptrend again. It's worth mentioning that Monday's Canadian GDP announcement led to a short-term downward reversal of the USD/CAD pair.

    The week ahead

    What about the coming week? Tuesday's Consumer Confidence will likely be the most important economic data release this week. But we will also await the Chicago PMI on Monday and the ISM Manufacturing PMI, FOMC Meeting Minutes releases on Friday. On Monday evening and then on Wednesday evening we will get some relatively important data releases from China. Will they move markets? There will also be economic data releases from Germany and the U.K. on Thursday. Let's take a look at key highlights:

    • The markets will await data releases from the U.S. this week: Chicago PMI, Consumer Confidence, ISM Manufacturing PMI and the FOMC Meeting Minutes.
    • The other important releases will include Thursday's German Final Manufacturing PMI and U.K.'s Final Manufacturing PMI.
    • There will be some economic releases from China on Monday and Wednesday.
    • Oil traders will await Tuesday's and Friday's inventories data releases.

    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.

  • Market News Report: December 23 - December 27, 2019

    December 23, 2019, 7:05 AM

    Last week the markets went "risk on" following positive economic data releases. Will the coming holiday week bring some interesting news events? Let's take a look at the details.

    The week behind

    Last week's Monday's and Friday's U.S. economic data releases were pretty important for the financial markets. On Monday stocks, oil were gaining and the price of gold was declining. And on Friday the U.S. GDP number pushed the risk-on markets even higher. We highlighted those data releases in our last week's Market News Report. The rest of the week has also been interesting. On Wednesday the Australian employment data release pushed the AUD higher, and then the Japanese Yen fell following overnight BOJ Monetary Statement, Policy Rate announcements. On Thursday the British Pound accelerated its short-term downtrend after the Monetary Policy Summary release.

    The week ahead

    What about the coming week? There won't be any important economic data releases in the U.S. And in the middle of the week, most financial markets will be closed. However, on Thursday there will be a speech from the BOJ Governor Kuroda. On Monday, we will get the Canadian GDP number. Last but not least, oil traders will get the usual inventories data. Let's take a look at key highlights:

    • We will get a lot less economic data releases in the coming Christmas holiday week.
    • On Tuesday and on Thursday the U.S. markets will close earlier.
    • The most important releases will likely be Monday's Canadian GDP number and Thursday's Bank of Japan's Governor Kuroda Speech
    • Oil traders will await Tuesday's and Friday's inventories data releases.

    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 trader's 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: December 16 - December 20, 2019

    December 16, 2019, 8:17 AM

    The markets were pretty quiet early last week ahead of Wednesday's FOMC Rate Decision announcement. But it didn't move them that much. All changed on Thursday following Donald Trump's tweet about the coming trade deal. It set the risk-on mode. What about this week's potentially market-moving news releases? Let's take a look at the details.

    The week behind

    Wednesday's FOMC Rate Decision brought the most attention last week, but it didn't move the financial markets that much. Well, stocks, oil, the price of gold jumped and the dollar fell but the changes were unimpressive. The only real short-term game changer happened on Thursday in a form of a tweet from the U.S. President about the coming U.S. - China trade deal. It set the risk-on tone for the markets, and the U.K. Elections just added fuel to the fire on Friday morning. Overall, the economic numbers have been overshadowed by a single Trump's Twitter message.

    The week ahead

    What about the coming week? On Monday and on Friday we will get some pretty important economic data releases in the U.S. Then the Wednesday's Bank of Japan's monetary policy release may cause some volatility in the financial markets. But will the Thursday's evening People's Bank of China announcement be as important to the markets? This week's news from Australia, Canada and the U.K. may also bring some volatility to their exchange rates. Let's take a look at key highlights:

    • Monday's PMI numbers and Friday's GDP along with Personal Spending and Personal Income numbers will be the most important U.S. economic data releases this week.
    • The Japanese Yen traders should note Wednesday night in their calendar - there will be important announcements: Monetary Policy Statement, BOJ Policy Rate followed by the BOJ Press Conference.
    • On Thursday evening we will get the People's Bank of China Loan Prime Rate release. It may be well worth watching.
    • There will also be lots of domestic economic data releases from Australia, Canada and the U.K. in the coming week. And don't miss Wednesday's ECB's President Lagarde Speech followed by the German Ifo Business Climate number 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.
