The Week Ahead in the Global Financial Markets

The Trading Room

From the desk of Joe Rios…

Hooray for Volatility! This sure was an exciting week in the global financial markets. The emerging markets led the decline especially in the stock and currency markets. Flight to safety continued throughout the week and dominated the headline news. Natural Gas futures led the volatility race losing -7% for the week, a slight loss compared to the impressive overall gain of 15.5% for the month of January. Conversely the laggard for the month in the commodity markets were Wheat dropping -8.2% and Copper -6%.

In the week ahead we will see plenty of economic data and more corporate earnings reports. US payrolls report should be crucial for risk assets. If job growth bounces back then the Fed’s current pace of QE might be in place, however, another weak month for NFPs and the market could start pricing in for a less aggressive Fed.

I will continue to focus on the correlations between the benchmarks with a special interest in Gold and the Japanese Yen. Gold may proof to be a leading indicator for active traders, especially after observing last week’s aggressive price action minute(s) before key economic data releases. The Japanese Yen may also continue to have a correlation with the stock indices as carry trades initiate and/or unwind carry trades.
