TOP 5 THINGS THAT MOVED MARKETS THIS PAST WEEK

TOP 5 THINGS THAT MOVED MARKETS THIS PAST WEEK

Take a peek at the top 5 things that rocked U.S. markets this week.

Take a peek at the top 5 things that rocked U.S. markets this week.

Inflation, where art thou’?

Data this week showed the slowdown in inflation continued unabated, after U.S. consumer and wholesale inflation undershot forecasts, narrowing the Federal Reserve’s case for a third rate hike this year, forcing the dollar to give up gains against its rivals.

The minutes to Federal Reserve’s July meeting due next week, however, are expected to provide investors with fresh insight into the central bank’s thinking regarding monetary policy.

In July, the Fed kept rates unchanged, citing concerns over the stuttering pace of inflation.

US-North Korea tensions revived demand for gold

President Trump rattled markets late Tuesday, warning North Korea that any threats to the U.S. “will be met with fire and fury”. North Korea, however, shrugged off the warning and said it was “carefully examining” a plan to strike Guam, where a U.S. military base is located.

Geopolitical intensified later in the week, as Trump suggested his ‘fire and fury’ warning “may have not gone far enough”. Trump later added, American weapons were “locked and loaded” as Pyongyang accused him of driving the Korean Peninsula to the brink of nuclear war.

Gold was the main beneficiary of rising U.S.-North Korea tensions, posting its biggest weekly gain in four months as investors piled into safe havens.

Bitcoin soared above $3,500 to record all-time highs

Bitcoin surged to all-time highs on Friday, a little over a week after bitcoin split into two, as sentiment on the digital currency improved amid bullish comments from analysts.

“Whether or not you believe in the merit of investing in cryptocurrencies (you know who you are), real dollars are at work here and warrant watching,” Goldman Sachs noted in its question-and-answer report focused on cryptocurrencies.

Both Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum, followed bitcoin higher, as the latter hit one-month highs on Thursday.

Snap slid below $12 to record fresh new lows

Shares of Snap Inc (NYSE:SNAP) fell 14% on Friday, a day after the social media company reported a lower-than-expected number of daily active users for Snapchat, its popular messaging app, for the second quarter amid stiff competition from Facebook and Instagram.

Snap said on Thursday its daily active users (DAUs) rose to 173 million in the quarter ended June 30, below expectations of a rise to 175.2 million DAUs.

Shares of snap closed at $11.83, down about 60% from its peak of $29.44.

U.S. JOBLESS CLAIMS RISE BY 3,000 TO 244,000 LAST WEEK

JOBLESS CLAIMS RISE The number of people who filed for unemployment assistance in the U.S. last week rose unexpectedly,

JOBLESS CLAIMS RISE The number of people who filed for unemployment assistance in the U.S. last week rose unexpectedly, but remained in territory consistent with a strengthening labor market, official data showed on Thursday.

The number of individuals filing for initial jobless benefits in the week ending August 5 increased by 3,000 to a seasonally adjusted 244,000 from the previous week’s revised total of 241,000, the U.S. Department of Labor said.

Analysts expected jobless claims to fall by 1,000 to 240,000 last week.



JOBLESS CLAIMS RISE

The four-week moving average was 241,000, down 1,000 from the previous week. The monthly average is seen as a more accurate gauge of labor trends because it reduces volatility in the week-to-week data.

Continuing jobless claims in the week ended July 29 inched down to 1.951 million from 1.967 million in the preceding week. Analysts had expected continuing claims to dip to 1.960 million.

USD/JPY was at 109.65 from around 109.76 ahead of the release of the data, EUR/USD was trading at 1.1744 from around 1.1727 earlier, while GBP/USD was at 1.3005 from 1.2990.

The US dollar index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of six major rivals, was at 93.46, compared to 93.57 ahead of the report.

Meanwhile, U.S. stock futures pointed to a lower open. The blue-chip Dow futures fell 48 points, or around 0.2%, the S&P 500 futures declined 10 points, or about 0.4%, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 futures slumped 35 points, or 0.6%.

Elsewhere, in the commodities market, gold futures traded at $1,288.83 a troy ounce, compared to $1,286.89 ahead of the data, while crude oil traded at $50.12 a barrel from $50.09 earlier.Like up on FACEBOOK

THE WEEK AHEAD: 5 THINGS TO WATCH ON THE ECONOMIC CALENDAR

ECONOMIC CALENDAR Global financial markets will focus on a big batch of U.S. economic data in the week ahead, with Friday’s inflation repor

ECONOMIC CALENDAR Global financial markets will focus on a big batch of U.S. economic data in the week ahead, with Friday’s inflation report in the spotlight, for further clues on the timing of the next Federal Reserve rate hike.

Investors will also keep an eye out on a number of Fed speakers for any new insight on when and how the central bank plans to pare back its massive balance sheet.

Elsewhere, China is to release monthly trade and inflation data amid recent signs that momentum in the world’s second largest economy remains strong.

In the U.K., traders will be awaiting a report on manufacturing production for further indications on the continued effect that the Brexit decision is having on the economy.

 



 

ECONOMIC CALENDAR

Meanwhile, market players await monthly reports from the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Counties and the International Energy Agency to assess global oil supply and demand levels.

Ahead of the coming week, Investing.com has compiled a list of the five biggest events on the economic calendar that are most likely to affect the markets.

1. U.S. inflation data

The Commerce Department will publish inflation figures for July at 8:30AM ET (1230GMT) Friday. Market analysts expect consumer prices to ease up 0.2%, while core inflation is forecast to rise 0.2%.

On a yearly base, core CPI is projected to climb 1.7%. Core prices are viewed by the Federal Reserve as a better gauge of longer-term inflationary pressure because they exclude the volatile food and energy categories. The central bank usually tries to aim for 2% core inflation or less.

Rising inflation would be a catalyst to push the Fed toward raising interest rates in the months ahead.

Besides the inflation data, this week’s calendar also features reports on JOLTS job openings, nonfarm productivity and unit labor costs, producer prices as well as weekly jobless claims.

In the stock market, struggling retailers, such as Macy’s (NYSE:M), Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN), Kohl’s (NYSE:KSS) and JC Penney (NYSE:JCP), will release results in the week ahead, as earnings season begins to wind down. Media companies, like Disney (NYSE:DIS) and News Corp (NASDAQ:NWSA), as well as some recent IPOs, including Snap (NYSE:SNAP) and Blue Apron (NYSE:APRN), will also garner some attention.

Focus will also be on headlines coming out of Washington, even as Congress slows down for August recess. The investigation into U.S. President Donald Trump campaign’s ties to Russia will remain on the agenda.

2. Fed speakers

A handful of Fed policymakers are due to make public appearances this week that may offer fresh clues on future monetary policy moves.

Monday sees St. Louis Fed President James Bullard and Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari make public appearances.

On Thursday, New York Fed President William Dudley will speak about wage inequality in his region. His comments will be scrutinized to gauge whether the Fed’s view on low inflation appears to be transitory or a longer term problem.

Finally, Friday sees Dallas Fed President Rob Kaplan and Minneapolis Fed chief Kashkari deliver comments.

Markets remain skeptical the Fed will raise rates in December, according to Investing.com’s Fed Rate Monitor Tool, due to worries over the subdued inflation outlook, but it is widely expected to start the process of reducing its balance sheet by September.

3. China trade figures

China is to release July trade figures at around 0300GMT on Tuesday. The report is expected to show that the country’s trade surplus widened to $46.08 billion last month from a surplus of $42.77 billion in June.

Exports are forecast to have climbed 10.9% in July from a year earlier, following a jump of 11.3% a month ago, while imports are expected to rise 16.6%, after increasing 17.2% in June.

Additionally, on Wednesday, the Asian nation will publish data on July consumer and producer price inflation. The reports are expected to show that consumer prices rose 1.5% last month, while producer prices are forecast to increase by 5.5%.

China’s economy grew a faster-than-expected 6.9% in the second quarter, matching the first quarter’s pace, supported by solid exports, industrial production and consumption.

4. U.K. manufacturing production

The Office for National Statistics is to produce data on U.K. manufacturing production for June at 0830GMT (4:30AM ET) on Thursday, amid expectations for a flat reading, following a decline of 0.2% in the preceding month. Industrial output is forecast to inch up 0.1%, after falling 0.1% in May.

The Bank of England cut its forecasts for growth and wages last week, and appeared in no rush to raise interest rates, as it warned that Brexit was weighing on the economy.

5. OPEC/IEA monthly reports

The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Counties will publish its monthly assessment of oil markets at around 7:00AM ET (1100GMT) on Thursday. It includes figures on the state of global crude stockpiles for July.

On Friday, the International Energy Agency will release its own monthly report on global oil supply and demand.

The data will give traders a better picture of whether a global rebalancing is taking place in the oil market.

Oil traders will also be focused on a meeting of oil ministers from some OPEC and non-OPEC countries set for Monday and Tuesday in Abu Dhabi to discuss compliance to agreed upon global production limits that run through March 2018.

So far, the output deal has had little impact on global inventory levels due to rising supply from producers not participating in the accord, such as Libya and Nigeria, as well as a relentless increase in U.S. shale output.
