During the session on Monday, we will have very little in the way of economic announcements, with perhaps PPI numbers coming out of the EU be in the biggest factor. With this, the market will probably be very quiet, with stability being the theme all things being equal.
1 – The US dollar has been getting hit lately, and in the jobs numbers, although fairly decent during the session on Friday as the US economy added 215,000 jobs, probably won’t be enough to change the overall attitude. Ultimately, the Friday session will have more than likely ended up being a bit of a dud, and that means that the markets will carry on as they have lately.
2 – It appears that energy markets are starting to get hit a bit as well, as the market is starting to continue the overall downtrend that we have seen in this market for quite a while when it comes to natural gas and oil. The markets will more than likely continue to focus on the oversupply of energy we can tell.
3 – Going forward, it appears that there is going to be a continuation of the anti-US dollar sentiment in the market, as the search for higher yield continues. This should continue to inflate assets as central banks have planned. With that being the case, it’s possible that we see commodity markets react fairly well.
