The Upcoming Week: Live sessions & market movers [9.2.2020]

The week ahead has more central bankers speaking than data events, aside from the RBNZ monetary policy meeting which could impact the markets depending on how the week starts we really have a light data calendar.

The main data events this week will be the CPI and Retail sales data out of the USA and preliminary GDP data out of the UK.

On the risk sentiment side... the coronavirus fears went down hence the reason WTI, Brent and Indicies went up from Monday until Thursday, but any more spreading or deaths we can witness and major market impact because we are going through the relief point right now.

The best site we found for live updates on the Coronavirus is CNBC and you can check it here. There have been many updates on the virus and the problems keep rising

Leaving the coronavirus aside, momentum in the global manufacturing sector appears to be strengthening. In the US, ISM manufacturing surged to 50.9 in January from 47.2 in December, while the euro area PMI also increased slightly. Next week, the US retail sales on Friday will be one of the week's most important releases (and we will trade it live!).

On the US political side, the first Democratic primary election in Iowa got off to a chaotic start on Tuesday. With most of the votes counted, surprisingly Pete Buttigieg tied with Bernie Sanders for first place while Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden placed third and fourth, respectively. The strong showing for Buttigieg and Sanders gives them strong momentum going into the upcoming primaries, with the New Hampshire on Tuesday being next.

In Germany, shock-waves went through the ruling coalition after the CDU voted with the AFD to install a liberal FDP candidate as state premier in Thuringia. A coalition crisis meeting in Berlin has been scheduled for Saturday.
