Risk-On sentiment dominated the global financial markets this past week as Brexit fears faded and central bank renewed stimulus was the talk among trading desks. Stocks scored big as capital inflows bid up US stock markets to new levels with both the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average reaching new all time highs throughout the week.
The situation in the Euro zone continues to be of concern to the global markets as the Italian banks threaten to blow up into another standoff similar to Greece. Italy could be facing deflationary depression, but will the ECB step up and buy Italy’s debt? Will they avoid violating ECB and EU policy? In the week ahead, keep a close watch on the euro currency for trading opportunities.
The market’s view of the probability of a Fed interest rate hike this year has dropped dramatically since the Brexit vote. However, US economic data released since then have shown better-than-expected indications of the US economy. This included the highly-positive non-farm payrolls employment numbers for June, weeks of lower jobless claims, the producer price index coming in at its highest increase in a year, and retail sales numbers on Friday far exceeding expectations.
This week’s calendar includes a light schedule for data with an emphasis on housing. Corporate earnings season is in full swing with important reports scheduled every day.
