Look ahead: Economic Calendar

September 23, 2014, 12:34 pm Rod David

A midday look ahead in preparation for economic reports and events scheduled for the next trading day.

Highlights: Tuesday night’s Fed speaker shouldn’t be very surprising, since she spoke in the morning. The afternoon’s two Fed speakers aren’t as hawkish.

A midday look ahead in preparation for economic reports and events scheduled for the next trading day.

Highlights: Tuesday’s calendar looks busy, but the reports have no track record of influencing price action. Meanwhile, two Fed speakers are scheduled pre-open, and both have potential to shake things up.

A midday look ahead in preparation for economic reports and events scheduled for the next trading day.

Highlights: The post-open Housing sector report can influence price action, more so for being post-open and on a Monday. But the Fed report should have no bearing at all on price action.

A midday look ahead in preparation for economic reports and events scheduled for the next trading day.

Highlights: Friday’s option expiration is the quarterly so-called Quadruple Witching. There was a day when Triple Witching expiration caused massive price intraday swings. Nowadays, the event crowds out surprises more than it invites them. But it doesn’t often encounter high-profile influential econ reports, such as the post-open LEI. Or competition for liquidity from a record-setting IPO like Alibaba (BABA), scheduled to be priced after Thursday’s close for trading Friday.

A midday look ahead in preparation for economic reports and events scheduled for the next trading day.

Highlights: Wednesday’s close and range may allow my WedEX (Wednesday Expiration) Indicator to trigger, and to forecast a bias into and out of the weekend. Meanwhile, Exit polling from Scotland’s referendum on independence may be influencing price action soon after that. Oh, and each of the morning’s three econ reports is high-profile and has a track record of influencing price action.

A midday look ahead in preparation for economic reports and events scheduled for the next trading day.

Highlights:Wednesday’s pre-open CPI has a reliable track record for influencing price action. That reaction may foreshadow any reaction to the post-open Housing sector data. But both may be overshadowed by hesitation ahead of the afternoon’s FOMC policy statement. Its influence on price action is among the month’s strongest. More so, this month, as it is followed by the quarterly Fed Chair’s Q&A.

A midday look ahead in preparation for economic reports and events scheduled for the next trading day.

Highlights: Tuesday’s PPI has a reliable track record of influencing price action. But it’s pre-open, so its effect will only set the open’s tone, but not necessarily dictate it.

A midday look ahead in preparation for economic reports and events scheduled for the next trading day.

Highlights: After a week without high-profile econ reports — one that followed an especially busy week — Friday’s calendar offers two opportunities to influence price action. The pre-open Retail Sales won’t get a reaction if it’s not surprising. But the off-hour timing and high-profile of the post-open Consumer Sentiment is reliable for triggering a reaction.

A midday look ahead in preparation for economic reports and events scheduled for the next trading day.

Highlights: The president is scheduled to address the nation regarding his plans to confront ISIS. Don’t forget the rally’s current upleg began after his prior nighttime address on the same topic that pushed the last downleg to fresh lows… Jobless Claims used to be reliable for triggering a market reaction, but it has become almost reliable for the opposite. The 30-year auction is likely to inhibit price action before its results, but later influence will be limited to a poor showing.
