What will drive the markets this week?

With the exception of the US, global stocks were mostly higher on Friday last week with equities in Asia recording the most gains thanks to China’s inflation update and the upward movement in Wall Street a day earlier. Stocks on Wall Street fell following a dismal week in US stocks. Treasury yields were also higher after data on U.S. producer prices raised conflicting views, stirring hope of moderating inflation but also fears the Federal Reserve will need to keep interest rates higher for longer.

This week’s spotlight will be on Tuesday’s latest inflation figures and the Fed’s two-day policy meeting, with central bankers expected to announce an interest rate decision and near-term projections for the U.S. economy on Wednesday. On Thursday, the U.S. Census Bureau will also report on November retail sales, indicating whether consumer spending remained solid last month. On Friday, S&P Global will release the flash estimate for its Composite Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) for December.
