Important Economic News Calendar: October 28 – November 1, 2019

October 28, 2019

Brace for a very busy week on the financial markets! The Fed will decide about the U.S. monetary policy and the Bureau of Labor Statistics will release its usually important monthly figures. Will quarterly corporate earnings push stock prices to new record highs? Let’s take a look at this week’s schedule.

The week behind

In our last week’s news calendar we pointed out that Thursday’s ECB’s Monetary Policy Statement and their Main Refinancing Rate followed by the Press Conference will be the most important news releases for the coming week. And they were indeed: Gold, Silver and Mining Stocks rallied, Euro tumbled following its initial advance. But stock markets were relatively calm. It might have been caused by an ongoing quarterly earnings season. On Thursday we also had a series of sentiment data releases from Europe and the U.S. and the markets were volatile ahead of the mentioned ECB’s Statement.

The week ahead

What about the coming week? All eyes will be on the FOMC’s Rate Decision release on Wednesday. Then we will get Non-farm Payrolls number on Friday. But there’s much more. We will get a lot of important economic data releases this week, along with some big quarterly corporate earnings announcements. Let’s take a look at key highlights:

  • It will be a very busy week for the financial markets, as the FED will release its Rate Decision on Wednesday, and on Friday we will get the important monthly jobs data.

  • But there will be several other important U.S. data releases: Consumer Confidence on Tuesday, Advance GDP number, ADM Non-Farm Employment Change on Wednesday, Personal Spending, Personal Income, Chicago PMI on Thursday, ISM Manufacturing PMI on Friday.

  • Outside the U.S., we will also get very important data: Japan’s Monetary Policy Statement, Reserve Bank of Australia Governor Lowe Speech, Bank of Canada Rate Statement, China’s Manufacturing PMI on Wednesday, China’s Caixin Manufacturing PMI and Eurozone’s CPI Flash Estimate on Thursday.

  • Last but not least, earnings season will get into full swing this week! GOOG, T on Monday, GM, AMD on Tuesday, GE, FB on Wednesday, BMY, MO on Thursday and BABA, XOM on Friday, among others.

You will find this week’s the key news releases below (EST time zone). For your convenience, we broken them down per market to which they are particularly important, so that you know what to pay extra attention to, if you have or plan to have positions in one of them. Moreover, we put the particularly important news in bold. This kind of news is what is more likely to trigger volatile movements. The news that are not in bold usually don’t result in bigger intraday moves, so unless one is engaging in a particularly active form of day trading, it might be best to focus on the news that we put in bold. Of course, you are free to use the below indications as you see fit. As far as we are concerned, we are usually not engaging in any day trading during days with “bold” events on a given market. However, in case of more medium-term trades, we usually choose to be aware of the increased intraday volatility, but not change the currently opened position.
