The Week Ahead: 5 Things to Watch on the Economic Calendar

Investing.com - After a historic week in which Republican Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, investors will get back to the business of watching economic data for fresh indications on the health of the economy, with Friday's advanced reading for U.S. growth in the spotlight.

Meanwhile, in the U.K., market players will pay close attention to a first estimate of U.K. fourth quarter GDP for further signals on the continued effect that the Brexit decision is having on the economy.

In the euro zone, traders will await flash survey data on euro zone business activity for fresh clues on the health of the region’s manufacturing and services sector.

Elsewhere, Japanese inflation data will also be in focus as investors assess the need for further stimulus in the world's third's largest economy.

In emerging markets, traders will focus on a key rate decision by Turkey's central bank on Tuesday.

Ahead of the coming week, Investing.com has compiled a list of the five biggest events on the economic calendar that are most likely to affect the markets.

1. U.S. Advanced 4th Quarter Growth Data

The U.S. is to release preliminary figures on fourth quarter economic growth at 8:30AM ET (13:30GMT) Friday. The data is expected to show that the economy expanded at a healthy 2.2% annual rate in the final three months of 2016, easing from growth of 3.5% in the third quarter.

Besides the GDP report, this week's calendar also features U.S. data on existing home sales on Tuesday, initial jobless claims and new home sales on Thursday, followed by durable goods orders and revised consumer sentiment on Friday.

A recent string of solid data reinforced the view that the U.S. economy is sufficiently robust to warrant higher interest rates in the months ahead.

2. U.K. Preliminary Q4 GDP Figures

The Office for National Statistics is to produce preliminary data on U.K. economic growth for the fourth quarter at 09:30GMT (4:30AM ET) on Thursday.

The report is forecast to reveal the economy grew 0.5% in the September-December quarter, after expanding 0.6% in the preceding quarter, confirming that the British economy remains on a solid footing.

On an annualized rate, the British economy is expected to grow 2.1% in the fourth quarter, down slightly from growth of 2.2% in the previous three-month period.

Also in focus will be the U.K.'s High Court ruling due on Tuesday at 09:30GMT (4:30AM ET) regarding the government's ability to bypass parliament and initiate the Brexit process by triggering Article 50.

3. Flash Euro Zone PMIs for January

The euro zone is to publish preliminary data on manufacturing and service sector activity for January at 09:00GMT (4:00AM ET) on Tuesday, amid expectations for a modest decline.

Ahead of the euro zone PMI's, France and Germany will release their own PMI reports at 08:00GMT and 08:30GMT respectively.

In addition, market participants will be focusing on Wednesday's IFO survey data on German business confidence to gauge sentiment in the euro zone's largest economy.

4. Japanese December Inflation Data

Japan's Statistics Bureau will publish December inflation figures at 23:30GMT Thursday (6:30PM ET). Market analysts expect the headline figure to remain negative, falling 0.4% year-on-year, which would be the 13th straight month of declines.

The country has been struggling to hit its 2% consumer price target, keeping pressure on the Bank of Japan to maintain its aggressive stimulus package when it meets next week.

5. Turkish Central Bank Decision

Currency traders will be paying close attention to the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey's (CBRT) monetary policy decision at 12:00GMT (7:00AM ET) on Tuesday.

Investors expect the Turkish central bank to raise its benchmark interest rate by 50 basis points to 8.5% after recent attempts to defend the Turkish lira with liquidity measures proved ineffective.

The lira has dropped as much as 10% since the start of 2017, battered by concern over Turkey's political and economic outlook as well as and doubts about whether the authorities will take decisive steps to arrest the slide.

Gold prices gain as Trump takes the helm, trade flows eyed

Investing.com - Gold prices gained on Friday in the U.S. as Donald Trump delivered an inaugural address as president that vowed to pursue an America First policy in economic management, raising same concerns that global trade patterns are in for more shock as Brexit looms and the North American Free Trade Agreement comes under the scanner.

"From this moment on, it's going to be America First," Trump said. "Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength."

On the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange, gold futures for March delivery rose 0.67% to $1,209.50 a troy ounce, while copper futures gained 0.21% to $2.616 a pound with the industrial metal seen as a bellwether for global economic prospects.

The dollar weakened against a basket of currencies on Friday as Donald Trump became the 45th president of the United States and used his inaugural speech to hit populist themes on halting off-shoring of work that have raised concerns of a trade war with leading manufacturing exporters such as China.

The U.S. dollar index fell 0.33% to 100.07. In earlier trade, gold's safe-have status was sought as caution surrounded Trump’s future policies. The February contract ended Thursday’s session 0.87% lower at $1,201.50 an ounce.

However, gold faces resistance to higher prices on expected interest rate hikes this year with Fed Chair Janet Yellen noting on Thursday the central bank should continue to raise interest rates, but slowly.

Speaking at a conference in San Francisco, Yellen said that "allowing the economy to run markedly and persistently ‘hot’ would be risky and unwise," before adding: "I consider it prudent to adjust the stance of monetary policy gradually over time."

The greenback also initially strengthened on Thursday following the release of strong U.S. jobless claims and housing starts data, as well as an upbeat Philly Fed manufacturing activity report on Thursday. A stronger dollar makes gold, denominated in greenbacks, more expensive in other currencies, particularly the world's top two buyers, India and China.

On Friday data showed that China’s gross domestic product rose 6.8% in the fourth quarter of 2016, in line with expectations. Year-on-year, China’s economy grew at a rate of 6.8%, slightly above expectations for a growth rate of 6.7%.

The data eased concerns over a slowdown in the world’s second biggest economy, although worries surrounding the country’s growing debt persisted.

Dollar weakens as Trump inaugural hits populist trade notes

Investing.com - The dollar weakened against a basket of currencies on Friday as Donald Trump became the 45th president of the United States and used his inaugural speech to hit populist themes on halting off-shoring of work that have raised concerns of a trade war with leading manufacturing exporters such as China.

The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, dropped 0.31% to 100.79. USD/JPY changed hands at 114.59, down 0.24% after the speech and market close, while GBP/USD rose 0.23% to 1.2374 as the United Kingdom prepares to exit the European Union trade bloc and strike stronger trade ties to the U.S.

USD/CAD was nearly flat at 1.3317 as investors awaited further word on the fate of the North American Free Trade Agreement that also includes Mexico in a massive trade bloc. The peso, USD/MXN tumbled 1.66% to 21.58 on expectations that Trump's promise to build a wall on the southern border and impose some kind of import tax would hit current trade patterns hard.

"From this moment on, it's going to be America First," Trump said. "Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength."

Earlier, the dollar pulled back from session highs against the other majors currencies sparked by comments Thursday from Fed Chair Janet Yellen that the central bank should continue to raise interest rates, but slowly.

Speaking at a conference in San Francisco, Yellen said that "allowing the economy to run markedly and persistently ‘hot’ would be risky and unwise," before adding: "I consider it prudent to adjust the stance of monetary policy gradually over time."

Earlier, the pound had weakened after the U.K. Office for National Statistics said on Friday that retail sales declined 1.9% in December, confounding expectations for a 0.1% slip. Retail sales fell 0.1% in November, whose figure was revised from a previously estimated 0.2% rise.

Year-on-year, retail sales increased by 4.3% last month, compared to expectations for a 7.2% climb. Core retail sales, which exclude automobiles, dropped 2.0% in December, disappointing expectations for a 0.3% fall.

As well on Friday, data showed that China’s gross domestic product rose 6.8% in the fourth quarter of 2016, in line with expectations. Year-on-year, China’s economy grew at a rate of 6.8%, slightly above expectations for a growth rate of 6.7%.

The data eased concerns over a slowdown in the world’s second biggest economy, although worries surrounding the country’s growing debt persisted. AUD/USD traded at 0.7560, down 0.01% late on Friday after posting gains earlier in the day with Australia China’s biggest export partner.

Crude prices jump as OPEC curbs eyed, settle over 2% higher

Investing.com - Crude prices jumped on Friday with investors noting an OPEC meeting next week could confirm solid compliance in a coordinated effort with non-OPEC nations to trim almost 1.8 million barrels per day (bpd) from global production.

Crude oil for February delivery on the New York Mercantile Exchange jumped 2.04% to settle at $52.42 a barrel. On the ICE Futures Exchange in London, Brent oil for March delivery rose 2.46% to settle at $55.49 a barrel.

However, price gains were tempered as U.S. oil drillers added 29 rigs by the end of last week taking the total to 551, compared to 510 a year ago, as drilling activity in shale formations continues to grow again with higher oil prices.

Since crude prices first topped $50 a barrel in May drillers have added a total of 235 oil rigs, with almost two-thirds in the Permian basin, the nation's biggest shale oil formation located in west Texas and eastern New Mexico. Other supply responses are coming from OPEC members Libya, Iran and Nigeria which are exempt from the cvuts.

Libya's National Oil Corporation (NOC) said its output now stands at 722,000 bpd, resuming its rise from levels below 400,000 barrels a day late in December after warring factions allowed oil fields to resume output and ports to load supplies.

U.S. stocks rise ahead of words from President Trump

Investing.com – Wall Street traded higher with markets waiting to see what type of message Donald Trump could send in his inaugural speech later on Friday.

At 11:00AM ET (16:00GMT), the Dow Jones climbed 95 points, or 0.48%, the S&P 500 gained 11 points, or 0.48%, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite rose 19 points, or 0.55%.

Ten weeks after shocking the world by winning the U.S. election, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States at approximately 12:00PM ET (17:00GMT) on Friday in Washington, D.C.

Though equities initially rallied after the surprise result on hopes that Trump would embark on implementing fiscal policies to spur growth and cut taxes, stocks have recently been cautious with the Dow itself ending down in the prior five sessions.

Trump failed to offer details on his promises to boost fiscal spending and cut taxes at a highly-anticipated news conference last week.

In that light, investors will welcome any detail he may give in his inaugural speech about his plans for tax reform, infrastructure spending and deregulation, as well as insight regarding policies on China and the domestic economy.

On a day lacking in any major economic reports stateside, investors evaluated several earnings reports from Dow Jones components.

Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) posted gains of more than 3% after the firm beat on both the top and bottom line and raised its fiscal year forecast for organic sales growth.

Even though IBM (NYSE:IBM) reported its 19th straight quarter of declining revenue, investors appeared to take heart in the positive outlook for its newer segments that allowed it to forecast full-year earnings that beat the Street. Shares were last up 1.8%.

On the downside, General Electric (NYSE:GE) led the decliners on the Dow with losses of 2% as the blue-chip conglomerate produced mixed results and traders appeared to focus on the bigger-than-expected 2.4% decline in revenue.

Shares of American Express (NYSE:AXP) were down 0.5% after reporting a lower-than-expected quarterly profit as the credit card issuer boosted spending on marketing and promotion to fend off rising competition.

Meanwhile, oil jumped nearly 3% on Friday, though investors will keep an eye on data from Baker Hughes out later on Friday to take stock of how U.S. shale drillers are responding to higher prices.

According to last week’s most recent data from the oilfield services provider, the number of rigs drilling for oil in the U.S. decreased by 7 to 522. That was the first decline in the oil-rig count in 10 weeks.

This weekend market participants will also be looking for any clues on the landmark agreement among major oil producers to cut production by nearly 1.8 million barrels per day.

A monitoring committee charged with tracking adherence to the global deal is due to meet in Vienna for the first time on January 22.

U.S. crude futures jumped 2.61% to $53.48 by 11:01AM ET (17:01GMT), while Brent oil soared 2.68% to $55.61

Dollar pulls back from session highs, Trump in focus

Investing.com - The dollar pulled back from session highs against the other majors currencies on Friday, as investors remained very cautious ahead of Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony, scheduled later in the day.

EUR/USD was little changed at 1.06è1, off session highs of 1.0694.

The greenback found support late Thursday when Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said the central bank should continue to raise interest rates, but slowly.

Speaking at a conference in San Francisco, Yellen said that "allowing the economy to run markedly and persistently ‘hot’ would be risky and unwise," before adding: "I consider it prudent to adjust the stance of monetary policy gradually over time."

But sentiment on the U.S. dollar remained vulnerable ahead of Donald Trump’s inauguration speech amid sustained uncertainty over the new U.S. administration’s fiscal and economic policies.

Elsewhere, GBP/USD slipped 0.16% to 1.2324.

The pound weakened broadly after the U.K. Office for National Statistics said on Friday that retail sales declined 1.9% in December, confounding expectations for a 0.1% slip. Retail sales fell 0.1% in November, whose figure was revised from a previously estimated 0.2% rise.

Year-on-year, retail sales increased by 4.3% last month, compared to expectations for a 7.2% climb.

Core retail sales, which exclude automobiles, dropped 2.0% in December, disappointing expectations for a 0.3% fall.

USD/JPY was little changed at 114.95, while USD/CHF held steady at 1.0059.

The Australian and New Zealand dollars remained weaker, with AUD/USD down 0.16% at 0.7549 and with NZD/USD retreating 0.51% to 0.7155.

The two currencies had strengthened earlier, after data showed that China’s gross domestic product rose 6.8% in the fourth quarter of 2016, in line with expectations. Year-on-year, China’s economy grew at a rate of 6.8%, slightly above expectations for a growth rate of 6.7%.

The data eased concerns over a slowdown in the world’s second biggest economy, although worries surrounding the country’s growing debt persisted.

China is Australia’s biggest export partner and New Zealand’s second biggest export partner.

Meanwhile, USD/CAD was up 0.17% at 1.3341, off a fresh two-week high of 1.3388 hit earlier in the session.

The Canadian dollar found some support as oil prices continued to climb on Friday, a day after the International Energy Agency said that world oil markets are slowly tightening as demand rises.

But gains were capped as Statistics Canada reported on Friday that retail sales rose 0.2% in November, disappointing expectations for a 0.5% advance.

A separate report showed that Canada’s consumer price index dropped 0.2% in December, compared to forecasts for a 0.1% decline.

Year-on-year, consumer prices gained 1.5% last month, confounding expectations for a 1.7% rise.

The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, was steady at 101.07,off session highs of 101.48.

In its monthly oil market report, the IEA said output cuts announced by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and 11 non-OPEC producers in November had "entered their probation period".

But gains were capped as Statistics Canada reported on Friday that retail sales rose 0.2% in November, disappointing expectations for a 0.5% advance.

Core retail sales, which exclude automobiles, inched up 0.1% in November, after a 1.4% gain the previous month and compared to expectations for a 0.2% rise.

A separate report showed that Canada’s consumer price index dropped 0.2% in December, compared to forecasts for a 0.1% decline and after a 0.4% slide in November.

Year-on-year, consumer prices gained 1.5% last month, confounding expectations for a 1.7% rise.

Core CPI, which excludes food and energy, fell by 0.3% in December, more than the expected 0.2% slip.
