Trading Radar: Investor Risk Sentiment Will Dominate Price Action


Economics, earnings reports, and market events for the week ahead.

With equities closing on the lows on Friday, the main determinant of asset prices next week are going to be the sentiments of various market participants. The S&P 500 (SPX) closed directly on the 200dma today, a level that it has not touched in 23 months - a widely publicized fact. As well, the two year uptrend has been broken.

The only economic repot of note next week is September retail sales. The headline figure will be low due to the 10 cent drop in gasoline prices last month.

Earnings begin in earnest on Tuesday with most of the major banks reporting next week. Some of the bigger names like Intel (INTC) and Google (GOOG) will also report.

US bond markets will be closed on Monday, although equity markets will be open for trading.
