MONDAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The weekend news flow has been squarely on the G20 meeting in Hamburg, and while the meeting has been focused on frosty relations we can see USD/JPY (if we use this as a proxy for risk) opening the new week on a flat note. This provides some confidence S&P 500 and US crude futures should open largely unchanged, although crude does have the benefit of a seven rig increase (to 763 rigs) in the weekly Baker-Hughes oil rig count.
Looking ahead, traders will continue to watch fixed income like a hawk for further knock-on effects into FX and equities, specifically with Fed governor Leal Brainard (Wednesday at 02:00 aest) due to speak on monetary policy and Chair Janet Yellen set to aggregate the backdrop into (hopefully) a somewhat clearer playbook in her two-day semi-annual testimony to Congress starting on Wednesday at 22:30 aest.
