    Part 2: Coming Week Market Movers & How To Profit

     

    The following is a weekly strategy guide for traders and investors, covering coming week’s market movers and trade ramifications for traders of all major asset classes via both traditional instruments and binary options. Perfect for those seeking a summary look at likely coming week market movers

     

     

    Given both the ongoing EU drama and only medium strength economic calendar next week, here are the likely big market movers next week.

    EU Crisis Related Events

     

    Expect anything significant regarding one of the following topics to be market moving, possibly the event of the week.

     

    Reaction To EU Summit: Markets will have had a weekend to further digest results of the summit. Friday’s reaction was positive, but we’ll know better by Tuesday. If confidence in the EU’s progress falters, as it well might given the lack of any explicit (vs. implied measures- see Part 1 for more)substantive immediate steps to prevent Italian and Spanish bond yields from rising, we’re back to crisis mode and a sell off

     

    Ratings Agencies On Sovereign Credit Downgrades: Given that it’s unclear how much cash is now available for further bailouts; expect some reaction from the ratings agencies, particularly Moody’s and Fitch as they play catch up to Standard & Poors’ downgrade of the EZ nations.

     

    GIIPS Sovereign Debt Auction Results: Italy, Spain, and Portugal will all be auctioning debt of various terms next week, and the results will be critical.

     

    Greece has talks with the Troika on Monday to ensure funding is available to cover about EUR 7 bio of debt issues maturing next week

     

    Top Calendar Events

     

    It’s a typical light mid month calendar. Highlights include:

     

     

    Tuesday

     

    GBP: CPI

    EUR: German ZEW sentiment

    USD: Retail sales, FOMC statement

     

     

    Thursday

     

    CNY: HSBC flash manufacturing (mfg) PMI

    EUR: German and EU mfg and services PMI, EU CPI

    USD: PPI, TIC long term purchases, Philly Fed mfg index

     

     

    Friday

     

    USD: CPI
