Market sentiment is quite poor currently on the comings and goings in the White House, along with the joint annual military exercises between the US and South Korea, which could prompt a response from North Korea. There is also the important Jackson Hole symposium towards the end of the week.
This market fragility is most obvious in the stock markets and least obvious in the prices of iron ore, copper and zinc, which have all been rising.
Among the forward-looking indicators to keep an eye open for this week, the ZEW and Ifo surveys could both be important, as will be the series of purchasing managers’ indexes from around the globe.
