Market News Report: January 13, 2020 – January 17, 2020

Paul Rejczak

The week behind

We’ve seen more volatility last week as financial markets have been reacting to disturbing news from Iran. The price of gold jumped to multi-year record high in the first half of the week and stocks corrected some of their recent run-up. But the markets reversed its course very quickly as investors shrugged off Iran fears. Then they awaited Friday’s U.S. monthly jobs data release. The numbers were worse than expected, so we saw some “risk-off” trading action again on Friday. Last week we underlined the economic data releases from Canada and it was worth watching those news, as the led to a jump in USD/CAD currency pair.

Let’s take a look at Friday’s gold price action. The market jumped at the moment of data release but then it quickly retraced the whole advance. However, it continued higher into the weekly close. So worse-than-expected NFP data triggered an intraday advance in gold price:

But what is the most likely short-term path for the price of gold in a few trading days after the monthly Nonfarm Payrolls number release? We’ve compiled the data since January of 2017, a 36-month-long period of time. The following chart shows that gold price was generally slightly gaining following the NFP release:

The week ahead

What about the coming week? Thursday’s U.S. Retail Sales number will probably be the most important data release this week. We will get China’s GDP data and the ECB releases on the same day. On Tuesday, the BOJ Governor Kuroda will speak and it will likely be closely watched by investors across all assets. The stock markets may focus on quarterly earnings releases from the U.S. banks. Let’s take a look at key highlights:

• The markets should focus on Thursday’s economic data releases this week: the Retail Sales number in U.S. and the GDP in China.
• On Thursday we will also get some important news from the Eurozone: the ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts and a speech from ECB President Lagarde.
• The Earnings Season starts this week. We will mainly see quarterly earnings from banks in the coming days.
• The Bank of Japan Governor Kuroda will speak on Tuesday in the evening.
• There will also be series of economic data releases from the U.K. this week.



You will find this week’s the key news releases below (EST time zone). For your convenience, we broken them down per market to which they are particularly important, so that you know what to pay extra attention to, if you have or plan to have positions in one of them. Moreover, we put the particularly important news in bold. This kind of news is what is more likely to trigger volatile movements. The news that are not in bold usually don’t result in bigger intraday moves, so unless one is engaging in a particularly active form of day trading, it might be best to focus on the news that we put in bold. Of course, you are free to use the below indications as you see fit. As far as we are concerned, we are usually not engaging in any day trading during days with “bold” events on a given market. However, in case of more medium-term trades, we usually choose to be aware of the increased intraday volatility, but not change the currently opened position.

Our Market News Report consists of two different time-related perspectives. The investors’ perspective is only suitable for the long-term investments. The single economic data releases rarely cause major outlook changes. Hence, we will only see a handful of bold markings every week. On the other hand, the traders’ perspective is for traders and day-traders, because the assets’ prices are likely to react on a single piece of economic data. So, there will be a lot more bold markings on potentially market-moving news every week.
