The Week Ahead in the Stock, Bond, Commodity and Forex Markets

The Trading Room

s&p 3-30

Since the FOMC statement last March the 19th, the US treasury 10 Year Note has held at a key support level. However the US equity markets have been trading sideways creating havoc for trend traders. The Russell 2000 and the NASDAQ 100 have under-performed while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has remarkably outperformed due to strength in the Energy and Utility sectors. Risk commodities outperformed last week led by Crude Oil and Copper. In the global markets most major emerging market ETF outperformed the US this past week led by Brazil, China and India. In the Forex market the commodity currencies outperformed the group led by the Australian, New Zealand and Canadian dollar.

Technically speaking the S&P 500 index ended the week in a short term downward channel located in the middle of a longer term upward trend channel, hence last week’s choppy market environment. Therefore In the week ahead I will pay close attention to the correlation between the two major benchmarks, the US treasury 10 year note and the S&P 500 index with the vista of using the US Treasury as a leading indicator for the S&P 500 price action and direction. Also pay close attention to the scheduled economic data releases below as they may serve as a trigger for price action volatility in the global financial markets.
