Key day or the week is coming up and markets are jittery. Yesterday risk was being bought, indexes rose slightly, the USD gave up ground and rates stabilized. The Fed`s Empire Manufacturing Index came as a very negative surprise at -31.8 vs -3.75 expected but did not have too much of an impact.
Disappointing Retail Sales in China is weighing on sentiment at the moment then USD Index is at 102.50 again, EURUSD 1.0866, GBPUSD 1.2500, USDJPY 135.85 and Gold and Silver 2012 and 23.85. Bitcoin is stuck at 27k .
Indexes remain rangebound, the US 30 33.250. US 500 4124, US Tech 100 NAS 13391. The GER40 15900.
We have some data out his morning but focus will be on the US retail sales at 14:30 and any outcomes from the debt ceiling negotiations. We only have app 2 weeks to find a solution and if not, there should be fairly wild swings in all asset classes. Fed speakers will also be watched closely.
