    13:30 – U.S. Housing Starts: The U.S Census Bureau will publish its U.S housing starts monthly update for August 2013; this report was historically correlated withgold price – as housing starts rise, gold prices tended to decline the next day (even when controlling to the U.S dollar effect); in the recent monthly report, the adjusted annual rate reached 896,000 in July 2013, which was 5.9% above June’s rate;

The total asset purchase program, in this case, will remain at $70 billion a month. Considering the little effect the treasury bonds purchase program has had on the economy and the slow progress of the labor market, the FOMC might decide to take different measures to stimulate the economy, such as revising up the inflation target, increasing the mortgage backed securities purchase program, or pegging the long term interest rates (10 years) at 2.5%. If the Fed introduces new measures, this could drag back down the USD. If the Fed only reduces QE3, it is likely to pull up USD and drag down gold and silver prices.

In any case, the FOMC’s statement, outlook and press conference that follow are likely to move the forex, stocks and commodities markets;

    Weekly Outlook of Financial Markets for September 23-27


    Despite the high volatility in the commodities markets, gold and silver didn’t do much on a weekly scale as both precious metals rallied; on the other hand, oil and natural gas changed direction and fell during last week. The highly expected FOMC meeting didn’t result in big changes in policy as the FOMC didn’t taper QE3 for now. Perhaps in December the FOMC will announce of a change in policy. I remain skeptic. Until then, many news items and speeches will unfold during the week including: U.S core durable goods report, China manufacturing PMI, ECB president speech, U.S consumer confidence, U.S’s GDP second quarter estimate, Germany’s manufacturing PMI, U.S pending and new home sales, German business climate, and U.S. jobless claims. Here is a breakdown for the week of September 23rd to September 27th referring to U.S, China, Euro Area, Canada, and Great Britain.

    14:00 – ECB President Speaks: Mario Draghi will testify on EU’s economy at the quarterly hearing of the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs, in Brussels. If Draghi provides in this hearing some insight behind ECB’s monetary policy and future steps, this testimony could affect the Euro;
