WEEKEND SUMMARY & THE WEEK AHEAD


Nov.10.2014

Does it feel like autumn to you yet? It sure does here in New York and among US traders going into a bank holiday. Despite a positive non-farm payroll report out of the US on Friday afternoon, investors were still wary of global events that could take the shine off their recently renewed optimism particularly going into a long weekend.

Most markets in Europe  moved lower, as fears that Ukraine could be slipping back into all out conflict reignited. The one equity market exception was the FTSE, where the positive jobs market data led to a rise in metals prices, which in turn led to listed mining giants rising and dragging the wider index up with them.

In Ukraine, the heaviest fighting since the cease fire was reported over the weekend. Kiev have accused Moscow of renewing the violence with munitions supplied to the rebels, as well as Russian troops getting involved. The two month long cease fire now looks is incredibly close to being over, with all sorts of risks if that does become the case. Russia is multi-tasking, according to NATO, with some 40 "unusual" incidents taking place in the last eight months, some of which could have led to conflict with NATO members. Japan seem less concerned and have held a meeting in Beijing with Mr Putin to try and repair their relationship and resume the process of reaching a peace agreement, which has been outstanding since the Second World War, according to Bloomberg.

Looking to this week, the next couple of days are pretty quiet, with a lack of tier one data today and a market holiday in the US tomorrow. Wednesday turns the focus back to central banks though, with the Bank of England's quarterly inflation report. Given that the only reason to raise rates at the moment would be the threat of inflation investors will be looking for changes of tone in the language of the BoE to see just how far back a rate hike has been pushed.

Today we'll also hear from Mark Carney, who is likely to say that taxpayer bailouts for banks are a thing of the past. Mr Carney heads up the Financial Stability Board, a body that advises the G20 on improving global financial stability and this weekend's G20 in Brisbane is likely to see a sign off on new legislation for the banks that are 'too big to fail' to adhere to.

Later in the week the US could be in for some extreme weather that could effect not only the forex dance floor but ,  energy prices and the economy in general as well. The return of a polar vortex might hit 42 states and could move the markets if it hangs around for a while, like the last one did. Other items of note are French and German GDP releases on Friday and UK unemployment on Wednesday, before the inflation report.
