Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2020 Feb 17, 2020 - 04:09 PM GMT

Stock-Markets

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.
