Welcome Traders,

The past week has been brimming with market-moving data, leaving traders on their toes as they navigated through the highs and lows. Here’s a comprehensive recap.

Economic Indicators and Market News

In Canada, the CPI month-over-month came in at 0.4%, surpassing the forecast of 0.2%. Similarly, the Median CPI year-over-year outdid expectations, coming in at 4.1%.

Across the Atlantic, in the United Kingdom, the CPI year-over-year was reported at 6.7%, falling short of the 7.0% forecast. Meanwhile, the Monetary Policy Committee had a surprising split vote, with the official Bank Rate remaining at 5.25%.

In the United States, the Federal Reserve kept the Federal Funds Rate stable at 5.50%. Additionally, Unemployment Claims improved notably, registering at 201K against the forecast of 224K. The New Zealand Dollar also impressed investors with its GDP growth of 0.9% for the quarter, defying the expected 0.4%.

Chart Analysis: The Story So Far

In terms of chart movements, the U.S Dollar stayed relatively stable, with EURUSD holding above the 1.0650 mark. Gold has remained flat for the week, and Crude Oil enjoyed a brief retracement but ultimately closed no higher.

Most notably, the global indices have been on a losing streak. For some, this marks the third consecutive week of closing significantly lower, reinforcing the notion that September could end up being the worst-performing month of the year.

Moreover, upcoming figures on the German ifo Business Climate, U.S Final GDP for the quarter, and many other significant events mean traders should brace themselves for another action-packed week.
