This week belongs to Central banks – almost every day capital markets will take a look at some of the key regulators and consider its decisions about credit and monetary policy. No steep turns are expected – time has not come for those – but volatility promises to be high.
A new week of July is going to be quiet: statistics are scarce, the EU leaders keep discussing what money to use for restoring the economy, oil remains under pressure, new cases of the coronavirus keep multiplying. Nonetheless, the currency market is cheerful, eager to risk.
The new week of June will bring about plenty of statistics and continue the season of Central Bank sessions. You will definitely not get bored; for now, investors are more interested in safe-haven assets, which may change the local exchange trend.
At the beginning of July, investors are unlikely to get bored - to tell you the truth, they have had no chance to get bored this whole year. On the macroeconomic calendar this week, there are more statistics than the market can work off; meanwhile, the sessions of Central Banks, the ECB being the leader, may provide us a clearer understanding of the future.
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.
Well, here we have yet another week of April; this month has become a mock vacation for the majority of citizens, a disaster for a large number of businesses, a revelation of a row of economic problems. Not much has changed since last week. However, there is good news: outside is spring, and summer is coming. Judging by the Chinese experience, the quarantine will come to its end someday, and life will get back to normal.
January was a pretty “stormy” month for financial markets. Something was happening almost everywhere, for example, fires in Australia, a quick spread of a new coronavirus in China, the Brexit in the United Kingdom, a change of government in Russia. In theory, the first week of February should be pretty quiet for investors and traded assets, but no one knows what may happen.
