Week Ahead: Fed meeting to assess inflation landscape

With the G7 event in Cornwall wrapping up on Sunday, the Federal Reserve meeting is the big event in the markets this week, whilst traders will also be keeping a close watch on high frequency data such as unemployment claims, retail sales and manufacturing indices from the US. Meanwhile UK inflation data will be assessed for any signs of pressures building in prices that could nudge the Bank of England to tighten monetary policy earlier than thought.

Markets look for direction from ECB, US CPI inflation

European stock markets were again lacking direction ahead of today’s closely awaited ECB meeting and a hotly anticipated inflation reading from the US. The FTSE 100 trades a little higher, the DAX a little lower. Wall Street closed lower with the major indices holding to well-worn ranges. The S&P 500 down 0.4% to 4,219.55 but remains just a few points below its all-time high of 4,238.04 set on May 7th.

ECB preview: no big changes ahead of Jun 10th meeting

The European Central Bank (ECB) convenes on Thursday (Jun 10th) amid a much rosier economic outlook than at the start of the year. But with the central bank having communicated its plans to front-load asset purchases, there is not expected to be any material change in policy or communication. It will be hard to avoid taper talk so how the ECB responds to questions around tapering will be of central importance to the market’s expectations and the euro.

Travel stocks rally, China PPI shrugged off for now

Markets stay calm, Bitcoin suffers

European markets opened a shade higher today after a mixed session on Monday saw little real direction from the major bourses. The FTSE 100 ended up 8pts, or +0.12%, at 7,077, but remains well within the range of the last 2 months. This morning it’s risen about 20pts to take a look at 7,100 again. US stocks were also mixed – the S&P 500 declined a touch as it struggled to make a new all-time high, whilst the Nasdaq rallied more than 0.4%.

FTSE early gainer as European markets open week lower

The FTSE 100 is the only early riser as European equity markets opened the week broadly in the red as Chinese trade data maybe just weighed a touch with exports lower than forecast despite imports growing at the fastest clip in 10 years. In London, housebuilders led gains while basic resources stocks fell. Asian shares were mixed, US futures are slightly weaker this morning.
