The third week of April will march under the banner of macroeconomic statistics while monetary policymakers will be quite reserved in their comments. However, this fact won’t decrease the number of catalysts for market fluctuations.
The second week of the month is not too rich in macrostatistics but there are definitely things to look at: the session of the RBA, the comments by Powell, the head of the Fed, and some digits.
The last week of March and the beginning of April in financial markets and other assets might be somewhat emotional due to the planned session of OPEC+ and a flow of US employment statistics.
A new week of March will bring us several decisions on interest rates, a flow of statistics, and comments of monetary politicians. All this will give capital markets new catalysts.
Another week of March will be surprisingly eventful: there will be a lot of sessions of Central banks, a flow of statistics, which means investors will enjoy a whole assortment of drivers or making trading decisions.
At the first week of March, the market will focus on everything about oil production and, of course, the US employment statistics. Things will definitely not be boring.
The new week of February, apart from freezing and nasty weather (which is explainable), will bring in tow a flow of statistics from the USA and Great Britain, as well as the minutes of the sessions of the ECB and Fed. No steep turns are expected here, however, you never know in advance.
The second week of February will focus on the same assets as the first one: oil and the USD. Both look overbought, but while investors are benevolent, they might go on growing, even from such high prices.
The first week of February will provide some understanding of the US employment sector, which is important for evaluating the perspectives of planned stimulation; also, we will see the results of some Central banks’ sessions. On the whole, no surprises are expected on either side – this means that the current state of affairs in the currency market can stay without change.
The last week of January will bring in tow a flow of US statistics, more sessions of Central banks, and a meeting of the US Fed. Things will be, at least, curious.
The third week of January will become the time of Central banks, while the USA will see the inauguration of Joe Biden, the president elected. These events will be enveloped in news, so investors will not have time for boredom.
This new week of January is unlikely to be eventful: the market has just got a whole load of news and is busy analyzing it. Oil is pricey, the risk seems appealing, and the nearest future does not look complicated.
One shouldn’t expect a Pre-New Year week to be feverish or volatile: everything that had to happen has already happened. It’s time to take a break to save strengths and come back to financial markets in the New Year as fresh as paint.
It is unlikely that this Christmas week, the last full week of this weird year will surprise us with some breakthroughs or drastic changes. Let us just celebrate the Catholic Christmas and hope that the elves are in good mood.
