The Week Ahead in the Global Financial Markets

From the desk of Joe Rios

The FOMC event this past week was the main focus for traders and investors alike. As expected the markets accelerated during Yellen’s press briefing with risk assets trading higher. However it was the Metals with Silver and Gold’s bullish price action on Thursday that stole the show. What was the message from that move? Is inflation back at the forefront? Inflation is already above the 2% target. Is the Fed behind the curve? In the week ahead I expect the focus will turn to the Fed and therefore to economic data releases.  I will place close attention to the reaction  and sensitivity from price action to the data releases. I will keep track of rotation flows from the major asset classes including the S&P 500, US Treasury 10 Year Note and the US Dollar. It should be a good week for events trading as I expect traders to react swiftly from any surprises. News from the Iraqi conflict can also bring volatility to the financial markets
