Numerous Economic Reports Due Next Week
Numerous Economic reports are due next week... These reports (CPI, PPI, Housing, Jobless Claims, Leading Indicators, etc) should provide some indication as to future fed decisions/actions, and will either spook or continue to bolster confidence in the markets.
Though the reports (through skewed data) will try to paint as pretty a picture as possible for the economy (putting lipstick on a pig), I think unexpected data will still leak through and we'll see/experience a wild week in the Dollar, Stock Market, Commodities, etc.
Update as of Sunday evening, 8:30pm PST: Looks like the world spot markets are starting off the week with enthusiasm. Gold is up $8.40 ($605oz), Silver is up .35 ($13.30oz), and oil is >$71 a barrel. Could be a very interesting week.
