Trading Radar: Eurozone GDP, US Industrial Activity Will Be Highlights Next Week

By Michael Sedacca  NOV 08, 2013 5:18 PM

Today's financial recap and tomorrow's financial outlook.


Friday's market caught many off guard. Following a bearish engulfing candle in the S&P 500 (INDEXSP:.INX) that swallowed up the nine prior days of gains, the market rallied back to retrace the entirety of yesterday's losses and then some. This type of activity is highly unusual because Thursday's losses would typically signify a change in trend. US Treasuries recorded its second straight week of losses, though it has become oversold enough to warrant a potential trade back in the other direction early next week.

The calendar is relatively light in the coming week due to Veteran's Day. The only economic data points to note are the October manufacturing production on Friday, and September's trade balance on Thursday. Because the government shut down in October and business surveys largely reflected a concern over future demand, the lingering question remains whether or not companies pulled back orders during the month. Thus far, from preliminary ISM manufacturing surveys, it appears that the concerns are unfounded. The manufacturing production data will be the first hard data point to determine whether or not demand slacked because of the shutdown.

Activity may be light in the US, but the calendar is robust for the rest of the world. The advance estimate of eurozone GDP is due out on Thursday, new loan data from China will be released over the weekend, and employment data from the UK is slated to be released.

The Q3 earnings season is winding down. Notable reports for the coming week include Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT), Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO), Dean Foods (NYSE:DF), News Corp (NASDAQ:NWSA), and GSV Capital (NASDAQ:GSVC). GSV is notable because it is a sizable owner of Twitter (NYSE:TWTR), which went public this Thursday.
