Now onto this week’s news highlights that will have an impact on your currency and commodity trading week:

  • China’s quarterly GDP and year over year Industrial production. Chinese production may see a steady slow down as overall global demand continues to weaken and could see GDP fall below the forecast of 7.2%.

Growth will continue to be a struggle behind the back drop of less than stellar data from euro zone, Asian and western economies.

HSBC Flash Manufacturing PMI – The index may reveal itself to be a hair above 50, but there would be no surprise to see it a hair below as we could see signals of contraction on the Asian horizon.

  • The Aussie – Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes – Will the release of meeting minutes reveal that the RBA (Reserve Bank of Australia) continues to send mixed messages regarding future rate increases?

Quarterly CPI – The Aussie CPI figure looks to be in check and in line with the previous measurement of .5%.

RBA Governor Steven speaks – He may hint towards a bit of tightening that may prove prudent in housing market lending. As the hot housing market may see some cooling, limiting over exposure may be be key by limiting loan-to-values and reviewing bank stress tests against any down turn swing in the housing market.

  • The Kiwi – New Zealand’s quarterly CPI and Trade Balance – The Kiwi may be longing for commodity inflation that will help ease pressure. At this point, even though the annualized CPI is anticipating to hit the over all target rate, it appears that the current down pressure may continue to remain for the time being and haunt the Kiwi.
  • The Euro – French and German Flash Manufacturing PMI. Both of which will continue to see contraction, but could be edging up a bit in spite of sluggish growth that continues to plague euro zone economies. The euro zone PMI releases will dominate this week’s euro pairing movement.
  • The Sterling – The MPC Asset Purchase Facility Votes  and Official Bank Rate Votes – These minutes should reveal that the vote holds steady on asset purchases.

Month Over Month Retail Sales – Could we see retail sales dragged down by the hard pressed euro zone economies? Most likely, the impact will be felt through the remainder of the year as euro zone developments could cloud any rays of sunshine in job and wage growth, that may be attempting to streak through.

Quarter over quarter Preliminary GDP.

  • The Loonie – Canadian month over month Wholesale Sales, Core Retail Sales and Retail Sales. All of which may reveal slight weakness from previous month’s figures.

BOC Monetary Policy Report, Rate Statement, Overnight Rate and BOC Press Conference which we can anticipate staying steady in light of economic market concerns. Caution will reign supreme.

  • For the USD – Existing Home Sales that are looking for a slight rebound from last month’s figure of 5.05 million which missed the mark.

Month over month Core CPI and CPI

Unemployment claims that are looking for a downward stretch closer to 250k.

New Home Sales – We look to see numbers hedge lower than last month’s actual figures of 504k but will be around the forecast target of 473k.

Volatility is here for now and that’s the way we like it. This has trader’s, like yourself,  dancing with countless opportunities for profit.

Market News Update

This week’s market news 10/12/14 thru 10/18/14

As we go through this last quarter of 2014, will we see the U.S. economy dancing with itself? Or will U.S. stock market “corrections” have the bear necessities singing their tune? Will the Aussie’s economy begin heating up and join the party? The data from weak economies in the euro zone, Asia and the like could also place downward pressure on both the USD and the Aussie.  Let’s take a look at what the releases have in store for this week’s economic news events, that will have an impact on your trading week:

  • China’s Trade Balance – Keep an eye on the reaction for the Aussie if we see China’s trade balance on the down side. If this is the case, we anticipate seeing downward pressure on the Aussie. Due to the export/import trade connection with resources between the two countries and how it affects the Aussie this could lead to a cooling of the hot housing market and upcoming employment figures. Also, the year over year CPI release that is anticipated to hit its forecast of 1.7%.
  • For the Aussie’s – Business confidence – The interconnection and reliance on China’s resources for the Australian economy has the potential to see a fading confidence if China’s trade balance figures come in on the down side.
  • For the Kiwi – The Global Dairy Trade release
  • The Euro – With the German Economic Sentiment release, we will see how this will affect the euro pairings. We will also see how German opposition and political tension is affecting ECB President Draghi’s push towards Q.E. We may see a trend towards waning optimism in the German economic future as factory orders, exports and industrial output have taken a down turn. All this while the cost of living is expected to see an increase. As President Draghi speaks, take note and see if he is able to shed optimistic light over the darkening shadow of economic weakness that looms over euro zone economies.
  • For the Sterling – The U.K.’s release of year over year CPI where we may end up seeing a decrease in the year over year inflation number and slightly lower than the forecast of 1.4%. Also, the Average Earnings Index and Claimant Count Change. The cost of labor appears to be, fractionally, on the rise and jobless claims are anticipated to see a fall which, in turn, signals growth in the U.K.’s labor markets.
  • For the Canadian loonie – Month over month Manufacturing Sales  and Core CPI figures are released, respectively. As we anticipate a contraction for shipments and factory sales from last month’s figure of 2.5% and the CPI figure could see itself with the same figure as last month of .5% in spite of the forecast figure of .1%.
  • Last, but not least is the USD – With a busy latter part of the week chalked full of releases that will affect your USD currency pairings look for:

Month over month Core Retail Sales, PPI and Retail Sales -Even though we saw a drop in light vehicle sales and lower gas prices, the overall indicators should prove solid and add a bit of steam to the growing strength of U.S. economic numbers.

Philly Fed Manufacturing Index – Once again, business conditions for the overall U.S. economy should post positive and has the potential to exceed the forecast by remaining in the twenty point plus range.

Building permits – which look to jump higher than the previous month’s figure.

Fed Chair Yellen speaks – If the stock market corrections stay in check, we may be able to extract tid-bits of cautious optimism. This will bode well towards available business opportunities that look to confirm the signs of a recovering economy that hopes to gain steam going into 2015.

University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment – As we continue to see the U.S. economy forging ahead, we can anticipate that consumer’s confidence will be sparked for the holiday season and spilling over into the approaching new year. This may be the case as long as the mixed messages of what could be labeled as stock market “corrections” remain in check. This will have American’s happy to make snow angels throughout the U.S. winter season and beyond.
