This week is going to be full of events important for the stock and capital markets. It is rare for the sessions of the Fed and the ECB to follow one the other but this is our case. The tension is growing. In these circumstances, the volatility in trades may grow, so caution is necessary more than ever.

The beginning of December on the markets will be saturated with general economic and political events, but investors are still more hopeful about the news from the US and China than for other catalysts.
This new week of November is saturated with the speeches of monetary politicians on various levels. This means that capital markets will have enough news to pay attention to and use as drivers in trades.
This week on the market is unlikely to become too active: there is nothing serious or influential planned. The season of corporate reports is more than halfway through and gives a clear picture of what is going on; Central banks have made all the important decisions; interesting statistics are concentrated in the second half of the week. However, in these circumstances, we still have things worth paying attention to.
This week is promising some interesting macroeconomic events and, as usual, a flow of different statistics of various importance. Investors have had a rest and show no fear of volatility.
The discussions of Brexit and the reactions of the pound have long been most vivid. The problem seemed on the verge of solving but alas, the decision is postponed again. The pound is nervous because of Brexit complications, and its perspectives are directly connected to the upcoming end of the drama.
This week is promising to be rather active for capital markets. We are expecting the statistics, the sessions of Central Banks and watching the Brexit soap opera.
Investors have long become used to the non-stop mighty flow of news, flooding the market. This week is no exception; however, the list of the planned news at the moment looks pretty neutral.
The beginning of October was turbulent, so this week investors must be happy if there will be fewer reasons to increase the volatility. However, there are enough reasons for movements in the macroeconomic calendar, as well as in the list of foreign policy events.
The end of September and the beginning of October are not going to be too stressful in terms of the news: planned events able to influence the key assets are rather few, while the macroeconomic statistics are abundant.
