Jonny Hart speaks to APAC Senior Market Analyst Jeffrey Halley about news impacting the market and the week ahead.
Today we start with a lock around Asian markets. The Chinese Yuan and Asian equities have headed south today after hawkish comments from Jerome Powell overnight. We look at the stimulus measures from China, or lack thereof, and their implications for Asian markets.
We touch on the pre-FOMC blackout starting tomorrow and how a lack of “Fed-speak” could impact currency and equity markets next week. Next up is the French presidential elections this weekend and hopefully, sighs of relief in Brussels.
After that, it’s on to the data calendar next week. China PMIs next Friday will be Asia’s highlight, while Europe sees German IFO and Eurozone GDP releases at the end of the week. Also towards the end of the week, we get US Personal and Income and PCE Indexes, which the Fed follow closely.
There is plenty of stuff in between, so please tune in!
