Market Movers for the week 3 – 7 October 2016

The last two weeks, now behind us, were filled with fundamental market movers, amongst which were definitely the monetary policy meetings of major central banks.

Warranting a mention among this week’s market movers are other scheduled monetary policy meetings, such as the Australian central bank meeting to make a decision on interest rates on Tuesday, 4 October. Once again, economists are convinced that the Reserve Bank of Australia will not touch rates.

On the topic of meetings, the economic calendar forecasts a meeting of the ECB at 9:00 on 5 October. In this case, however, the meeting will not be focusing on monetary policy for the Eurozone.

On the macroeconomic front, among the market movers this week, we have data on the Eurozone retail sales to be released at 11:00 on Wednesday and in addition, the data on US Non-Farm Payrolls which will be released at 14:30 on Friday, 7 October. This will provide important information on the country’s economic situation. The trend of the Non-Farm Payrolls can in fact determine a rise in interest rates in December by the Fed.

The market movers of the week in the Economic Calendar alert us also to important appointments with the PMI Manufacturing and Services for the Eurozone countries that will be released during Monday and Wednesday.
