Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition 09.20.21

By Ryan Nauman 20 Sep 2021

The week ahead is heavy on housing data, which has been red hot due to low inventory, rising input costs, and high demand. Additionally, we will get the flash PMI readings for the manufacturing and services industries. The most widely watched release will be the release of the FOMC’s September meeting announcement and Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s follow up press conference. Inflation (CPI) has slowed in recent months which follow’s the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) stance that high inflation is temporary. Will the recent cooling of prices take pressure off the Fed to start tapering asset purchases later this year? The tapering question, along with any new signals regarding interest rate hikes and economic projections will be the highlights of the announcement.

Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition 09.13.21

The week ahead is full of important economic data releases. The week includes soft data releases in the form of sentiment surveys as well as hard data releases like the consumer price index (CPI) and retail sales. Most will be watching the CPI release as inflation has been a primary concern for investors and businesses while the Federal Reserve walks a tight rope in trying to keep inflation from running too hot while not hindering the economic recovery, particularly the labor market. I will also pay close attention to the small business and consumer sentiment indexes to get a better idea of how they feel about the economy which can provide information about how they will spend in the near term..

Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition 09.07.21

It is a light week ahead for economic data during the holiday shortened trading week. While recent figures show that the labor market has slowed recently, labor demand has remained strong, which will be highlighted when job openings for July is released. The August release showed that the number of job openings outpaced the number of job seekers, we will see if this trend has continued in July. The other release I will be focusing on will be the producer price index as supply chain bottlenecks and short supply of materials have pressured input prices in 2021.

Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition 08.30.21

There are a lot of headline capturing economic data releases during the week ahead, but the releases that will capture most of the headlines happen on Friday. Now that the Jackson Hole Symposium is behind us, we can turn our attention back to economic data. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell stated the economy has achieved the FOMC’s goal of “substantial further progress” towards its inflation objective and the labor market has made “clear progress” during his Jackson Hole speech. We will gather more information during the week ahead regarding how much progress the labor market made in August when the jobs report is released on Friday. Additionally, the health of the manufacturing and services sectors will be on display as the August PMIs are released.

Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition 08.23.21

There are a lot of headline capturing economic data releases during the week ahead, but the releases that will capture most of the headlines happen on Friday. July retail sales missed expectations while consumer confidence has waned recently which has concerned investors that consumer spending may soften. With the current economy dependent on the spending power of the consumer, the July consumer spending release will be widely followed and has the potential to move markets. Additionally, the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) preferred measure of inflation, the Personal Consumption Expenditure price index (PCE), will be updated on Friday. Inflation has been a key driver of market movements recently and the topic of many water cooler discussions, so it will be widely watched as it is a primary data point in the Fed’s decision-making process regarding its tapering of asset purchases. Speaking of the Fed, the long-anticipated Jackson Hole symposium takes place during the end of the week. Traders will be tuned in to see if the Fed announces its plan to start tapering purchases and any signals regarding its accommodative monetary policies.

Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition 08.16.21

It’s a busy week ahead for economic data. The release of the July retail sales number will be high on my list of items to watch as consumer spending will continue to be a very important driver of the economic expansion moving forward. Furthermore, the consumer balance sheet remains strong as the job market is gaining momentum which should provide the consumer with more confidence to spend, however, the surging Delta variant may hinder some spending moving forward. Finally, the housing market will be back in focus during the upcoming week. Lumber prices have fallen, which should be music to the ears of builder’s and help increase new home inventory. However, mortgage rates are expected to rise, which will pressure home affordability.

Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition 07.09.21

With the labor market making progress towards the Fed’s goal of “substantial” further progress, all eyes will turn back to inflation during the week ahead. Expectations are for inflation to remain elevated during the months to come, but the question remains - will the higher inflation force the hand of the Fed considering the recent string of strong jobs reports?
