What Does the Fourth Quarter Hold for the Dollar, Equities, Oil and Other Key Markets?

What Does the Fourth Quarter Hold for the Dollar, Equities, Oil and Other Key Markets?


The third quarter has drawn to a close with remarkable levels of inactivity despite an abundance of trends from key benchmarks. In the capital markets, the S&P 500 charged to a record high on an eighth consecutive quarter climb while the VIX volatility index slid back below 10. Other, global equity indexes may not have enjoyed the same degree of productivity, but they were broadly higher. Meanwhile, in the FX market, the Dollar slid to two-and-a-half year lows while the Euro soared to equivalent highs. What motivated these moves matters profoundly for trends heading into the final quarter of the trading year.

Heading into the fourth and final quarter of 2017, speculative appetite and a shift in global monetary policy will continue to determine the bearing and activity level of the financial system. The Federal Reserve has revitalized rate expectations; but the Bank of England's and Bank of Canada's policy forecasts carry more hawkish expectations. As for speculative reach, exposure is at unprecedented levels both for both key measures like US equity indexes and through nascent rate forecasts for major currencies. How long can these trends hold out and how much more buoyancy can they provide? What happens if volatility returns through these final months of 2017? See the DailyFX Analyst's fourth quarter forecasts for key currencies, equities and commodities through year end.
