Despite civil unrest on Capitol Hill this past week, US and global equities finished on a high note to start off the first full week of the new year. The Russell 2000, an index measuring the performance of mostly small-cap American companies, outperformed the tech-heavy Nasdaq 100. The S&P 500 and Dow Jones followed closely behind.

What was rather more interesting was the tale of fixed income assets. Longer-term Treasury yields soared, with 10-year and 30-year rates surging the most since August. Financial markets welcomed Democratic Senators winning both runoff elections in Georgia. This has opened the door to larger fiscal stimulus, offering much-needed support to an economy recovering from the coronavirus.

December’s disappointing non-farm payrolls report underpinned the case for more support. As a consequence of rising government bond yields, gold prices could be left vulnerable following the worst week since late November. Meanwhile, crude oil prices may benefit, also supported by an unexpected output cut from Saudi Arabia after this past week’s OPEC meeting.

The US Dollar could also catch a break as rising local bond yields make it a more attractive investment, but the extent to which it could benefit is unclear given the Fed’s still-dovish stance. Further gains in equities would likely continue to work against the haven-linked Greenback, with the sentiment-linked Australian and New Zealand Dollars ripe to benefit.

Stricter lockdowns remain a risk for markets amid the new more-contagious strain of Covid-19. Markets will be eyeing a plethora of speeches from Federal Reserve Presidents such as Eric Rosengren and Raphael Bostic. ECB’s Chief Christine Lagarde is also on tap. Towards the end of the week, watch out for US retail sales and sentiment. What else is in store for markets ahead?
