The Week Ahead in the Financial Markets

From The Desk Of Joe Rios…

The Grains sold off dramatically with Wheat closing down -9.2%, Soybeans -8% and Corn -7.6% for the week. Other commodities that traded lower included Natural Gas losing -5.2% and Crude Oil slipping -3.2%. The out performers to the upside included U.S. Treasury 30 Year Bonds gaining 1.8%, Silver 1.7% and Gold 1.5%. In the Forex market most currencies traded within a tight range as illustrated by the US Dollar finishing 0.0% flat. Rotation flows within the benchmarks showed the S&P 500 and US Dollar trading mixed in consolidation mode while the US Treasuries traded higher with a bullish RiosQuant ranking and closing the week at a key technical resistance level. In the week ahead I will pay close attention to the markets that finished the week at key levels including the Metals, US Treasuries, Japanese Yen and Crude Oil. I will also pay attention to economic data releases especially from China.
