Markets Week Ahead: Dow Jones, US Dollar, Crude Oil, OPEC Report, California Recall Election

Markets Week Ahead: Dow Jones, US Dollar, Crude Oil, OPEC Report, California Recall Election

Daniel Dubrovsky, Strategist

General market sentiment turned cautious last week, with equities in North America (the Dow Jones and S&P 500 indices) and Europe (FTSE 100 and DAX 30 indices) spending most of their time trending lower. Those in Asia were mixed. Japan’s Nikkei 225 and China’s Shanghai Composite gained. Australia’s ASX 200 weakened.

The cautious deterioration in sentiment meant that recent weakness in the US Dollar slowed. Growth-linked currencies like the Australian and New Zealand Dollars softened. The anti-risk Japanese Yen saw some strength. Anti-fiat gold prices fell as the Greenback gained. Crude oil prices also turned slightly lower.

Following key central bank rate decisions from the RBA, BoC and ECB, traders will likely be eyeing key inflation data. The US, UK and Canada will release their latest CPI data. These will continue shaping how central banks may approach policy tightening. This could make for some US Dollar, British Pound and Canadian Dollar volatility.

At the beginning of the week, OPEC will release the latest monthly oil market report. WTI crude oil prices have been weakening since July. This comes amid concerns about the global growth outlook as the Covid Delta variant has been sapping demand woes. US retail sales may also stir volatility, especially if Covid shows increasing signs of making its way into the economy.

Tuesday’s California gubernatorial recall election might be a source of market volatility. Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom could get ousted with a simple majority vote and replaced by leading Republican candidate Larry Elder. The latter could appoint a Republican senator should current Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein step down during his tenure. That would threaten the Democrats’ razor-thin majority in the Senate, which would be consequential for being able to pass fiscal policy.
