Asian stock markets were narrowly mixed. What other market drivers do traders need to pay attention to? Get an overview here with 8 November Market moving fundamental events.
8 November, HotForex – The Tokyo Stock Price Index closed at the highest level since 1991, while other indices hovered slightly below recent highs. The Dollar slipped on tax news, and oil prices fell back and UK100 and U.S. stock futures are in the red, while oil prices fell back below USD 56 per barrel.
European Market Outlook
Time for stock taking it seems and yesterday’s late sell off on European bourses, which saw bond yields coming down sharply, it may be time for consolidation. There is not much else on the European calendar and French trade numbers are unlikely to attract too much attention.
Fed & BoC
Yesterday, Fed Chair Yellen stuck to the script on ethics in government and didn’t stray into policy or the economy when she accepted her shared Douglas award with former Fed Chief Bernanke from the University of Illinois. Therefore she did not attract much attention by the market.
BoC’s Poloz also delivered a speech yesterday, in which he downplayed the recent “perk-up” in wages, saying last week’s job report was “an encouraging set of numbers.” However, the “trend-line for wages has been quite low” and it perked up in the last data point but we “need more data points to be assured of that.” On oil, he cautioned that the supply curve for oil is more elastic than in the past (quick supply response).
In response to a question on NAFTA, he repeated his often aired view last month that the main impact on their thinking focuses on business investment, and the extent to which already raised expectations would be higher if not for the uncertainty surrounding the negotiations. On inflation, he said the “shortfall from target has been pretty modest. It is still within the bank’s target band. People still think 2% is the right number.
