Stick or twist? Markets pin hopes on Fed chair Powell

Jay Powell, chairman of the Federal Reserve, speaks today at the WSJ’s Jobs Summit. We know the Fed’s policy on jobs already; what the market cares about is the central bank’s response to volatility in the bond market. This will be the last time we hear from Powell before the blackout period for Fed speakers ahead of the March 16-17th meeting.

Budget 2021: Market reaction muted, BoE mandate raises eyebrows

“That which we are, we are”. Rishi Sunak channelled Tennyson and the wanderer Ulysses in one fell swoop to sum up his Budget. I’m none the wiser.

Stocks flat as investors weigh options, Kingfisher and The Hut Group post strong sales growth

Equities pause after strong week, Bitcoin tumbles, Wall Street earnings in focus

European markets were in a holding pattern early on Monday as investors parsed signals of recovery, vaccine rollouts, surging caseloads and tougher lockdowns.

Equities

Earnings Season Preview

The S&P 500 has risen over 1% this week to make a fresh record high, closing above 3,800 for the first time in its history. Ebullience is a factor of the hope in vaccines leading to a return to normal, corporate earnings improving sharply in 2021, and a broadly expansionary fiscal and monetary environment offering succour to equity valuations.

Risk bid in the teeth of surging Covid cases, Bitcoin tops $40k and Tesla goes to the moon

European stock markets moved higher as the dust settled over US presidential election at last and investors continue to overlook any short-term worries about the virus and focus on more stimulus, fiscal expansion, infrastructure spending and a return to near-normal later in the year that should unleash higher consumption levels.

How much higher can Bitcoin go?

Just how high can Bitcoin go from here? After a remarkable 2020 and a fresh surge in the first trading days of 2021, some are starting to talk up the prospect of a multi-year bull cycle for Bitcoin.

Stocks rise despite DC turmoil, Sainsbury's bumper Christmas

No one can accuse the US of tending to lethargy. Turmoil in Washington D.C. has been largely shrugged off by global markets, as investors bet more stimulus and fiscal expansion from a Democrat-controlled Congress will be the driving force for the upside to show more gains.

Brexit shrugged: FTSE, sterling jump as 2021 starts in risk-on mode

Global stock markets enter 2021 at or near all-time highs despite ongoing uncertainty around the pace of recovery from the pandemic and the threat of fresh lockdowns lasting well into the spring. Despite the anxiety around when we get back to normal, the major fears of last year have receded and liquidity remains strong.
