The last week of May will not be a calm time. There is no exact day of the end of self-isolation in Russia and the quarantine outside it; neither we know what that outer world has become like. This week, there is going to be much statistical data that may attract the attention of capital markets and a lot of geopolitical noise from the US and China, constantly angry with each other.
The world keeps fighting the coronavirus, but the victories are rather feeble. The new week of April and the beginning of May (oh my, it is May already!) will be the times of Central Banks and their attempts to soothe the business and economies.
The world remains on quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemics, the oil is getting cheaper, and capital markets get scared of every shadow. The beginning of April will show how ready investors are for a reversal and whether they are ready at all.
This March is risking to become a legendary month for capital markets — all movements and trends are defined by the only driver: coronavirus. This week is becoming no exception, and investors will again be looking not at the statistics but at the states' actions against the virus.
The last full-scale workweek of December is going to be quite empty of events and statistics: the catholic world will be away for Christmas, so the activity on the exchanges will shrink. In Russia, we speak more about the results of the year than tie up the loose ends. In other words, the year has been quite tough, it is time to have a rest.
The second half of December is the time of cleaning up the current affairs and forecasting the coming year. This week, central banks' sessions are coming to an end, but statistics will remain abundant. The markets will have no time to be bored.
The fourth week of November is going to be quiet and boring in the sense that there will hardly be any shocking news. However, those who are eager to trade actively will always find reasons for movements even in such dull conditions.
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 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.
