Key Events In The Coming Week

Tyler Durden's picture

This week markets are likely to focus on a few important data prints in DMs, including Philly Fed in the US (expect solid expansionary territory) and 1Q GDP releases in the Euro area (with upside risks). In DMs, the highlights of the week include [on Monday] Japan’s trade balance data and Australia business conditions; [on Tuesday] US retail sales, CPI in Italy and Sweden; [on Wednesday] US PPI, Euro area IP, CPI in France, Germany and Spain; [on Thursday] US Philly Fed, CPI, capacity utilization, Euro area and Japan GDP; and [on Friday] US Univ. of Michigan Confidence. In the US, we expect Philly Fed to print in solidly expansionary territory (at 14, similar to consensus) and to inaugurate what we call the active data period of the month. We also expect CPI inflation to print at 0.3% mom (similar to consensus), and core CPI inflation at 0.18% mom (slightly above consensus).

The key event this week will be the latest NFP reaction redux.

That is to say that even if the "economic data" is reported as strong, then yields will continue to fall because as Jesse Livermore noted, "the trend has been established before the news is published, and in bull markets bear items are ignored and bull news exaggerated, and vice versa."

Do you have your S&P 1900 party hat ready?


They are ramping em straight vertical, not a hint of weakness anywhere.  People are hitting the buy button in a panic and rightly so, the chance of us not seeing the S&P over 1900 this month is zero.

"markets are likely to focus on a few important data prints"

Um, shouldn't that be the pyramid con labeled 'markets' will be manipulated by vacuum tubes at selected nonsensical time stamps that co-incide with the release of even more manipulation in the form of fake 'statistics' and 'data'
