    Financial Market Forecast for June 30- July 4


    The energy commodities markets cooled down during last week as oil and natural gas prices changed course and fell. Precious metals remained virtually unchanged. This week, in the U.S several economic reports will be published including non-farm payroll, manufacturing and non-manufacturing PMI, factory orders, pending home sales, trade balance, factory orders, and jobless claims. Chair of the FOMC Yellen will give a speech. In Europe, the ECB rate decision will be the main focus. Germany’s retail sales and factory orders will be released. EU monetary development, CPI and rate of unemployment will also be published. RBA will decide its rate for July. China’s manufacturing PMI report will come out. In Canada, its trade balance and GDP monthly updates will be released. So let’s break down the economic outlook for the week of June 30th to July 4th.

According to the recent estimate for May, the annual CPI slipped to 0.5%; the core CPI fell to 0.7%, which is still well below the ECB’s target inflation of 2%.

In the previous update, for April, the seasonally adjusted balance of goods and services reached a $120 million deficit; the report will also show the changes in the exports of gold; if gold exports rise, it might suggest an increase in demand for non-monetary gold (see here latest update);

But based on her last press conference following the conclusion of the FOMC meeting, I’m a bit dubious she will offer any actual information or hints about these issues;
    05:00 –Governor Stevens speaks: Reserve Bank of Australia Governor is due to speak at the Australian Conference of Economists and the Econometric Society of Australasian Meeting, in Hobart; this speech may affect the Aussie dollar;

    Last week FOMC Meeting Minutes release showed that the Fed is finally moving towards preparing the markets for monetary normalization.

However there wasn’t any clear indication regarding the possible timeline for a rate hike. Regarding inflation, The Fed noted it had moved up recently, but some members said that employment market still needs to improve. Overall, the minutes confirm that policy changes will be made according to plan unless new data arrives.


    Let’s start,


    Mario Draghi speaks: Monday, 17:00. ECB President Mario Draghi is expected to testify before the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs of the European Parliament, in Strasbourg. He may talk on the ongoing weak inflation, despite the ECB’s recent moves. Volatility is expected.

    Japan rate decision: Tuesday. The Bank of Japan decided to keep monetary policy unchanged on its June meeting, pledging to increase monetary base at annual pace of 60-70 trillion yen. The central bank noted the economy is progressing at a moderate pace in line with expectations and revised up its outlook on overseas economies in light of a progress in industrial output.

    UK inflation data: Tuesday, 8:30. Inflation in the UK declined in May to a four and a half year low of 1.5%, following 1.8% in posted in April. Lower flight rates and food prices pushed inflation down. Inflation remained below the BOE’s 2% target for the sixth month. However prices still increase faster than average earnings influencing consumer spending. CPI is expected to reach 1.6%.

    Mark Carney speaks: Tuesday, 9:00. BOE Governor Mark Carney will speak about the Financial Stability in London. Market volatility is expected.

    Eurozone German ZEW Economic Sentiment: Tuesday, 9:00 Investor sentiment continued to decline in June reaching the lowest level in 18 months, down 3.3 points to 29.8. Economists expected the index to reach 35.2. This was the sixth consecutive fall indicating a grim outlook for economic growth unlike the 5.6 points rise to 67.7 for current economic conditions. However the ZEW survey can be volatile. German sentiment is expected to rise to 33.4.

    US retail sales: Tuesday, 12:30. U.S. retail sales gained 0.3% in May, less than the 0.5% rise projected by analysts, following a 0.5% increase in the previous month. However the positive growth trend in the US employment market leaves less room for concern. Meanwhile core sales, excluding autos increased 0.1% in May after a 0.4% increase in the previous month. Retail sales are expected to rise 0.6%.

    Janet Yellen speaks: Tuesday, 14:00. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen will testify before the US Senate in Washington DC. Important issues may be raised such as the final taper decision, inflation situation and rate hike schedule. Market volatility is expected.

The number of people filing claims for unemployment benefits in the U.K dropped more than expected in May, falling by a seasonally adjusted 27,400, while the unemployment rate plunged to 6.6% from 6.8% in April.

    US PPI : Wednesday, 12:30. Producer prices in the U.S. fell unexpectedly in May by 0.2%, confirming that inflation is mild. Chipper food and gas pushed PPI down after two strong climbs raising hopes for higher inflation figures. In the last 12 months, producer prices increased 2%, in line with the Federal Reserve’s inflation target following 2.1% in April. Core PPI, excluding food and energy products, remained unchanged in May. Producer prices are expected to rise to 0.4%.

    Canadian rate decision: Wednesday, 14:00. The Bank of Canada maintained its overnight rate at 1%. Inflation moved closer to the central bank’s target of 2%. The Canadian economy grew at a modest rate in the first quarter, troubled by by severe weather and supply constraints. However lower Canadian dollar and a rising foreign demand are expected to boost exports. Improved corporate profits, especially in exchange rate-sensitive sectors, should also support higher business investment in the coming quarters. The next change in monetary policy will depend on new information and its influence on the balance of risks.

    US Building Permits: Thursday, 12:30. The number of building permits issued in the U.S. declined more-than-expected in May, falling 6.4% to a seasonally adjusted 991,000 units.

    US Prelim UoM Consumer Sentiment: Friday, 13:55. U.S. consumer sentiment declined in June to 81.2 down from 81.9 posted in May, but the lower figure does not necessarily suggests a downside trend.

    US Housing data, ADP Non-Farm Employment Change, GDP figures in the US and Canada, US rate decision and Non-Farm Payrolls are the main market movers this week. Here is an outlook on the major events coming our way.

    Last week, the number of US jobless claims fell to 284K, the lowest level in nearly 8-1/2 years, indicating the labor market recovery is picking up.
