Trading Radar: Terrorist Attack on 9/11 Anniversary is Top Concern


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

Coming out of Friday, the main worry for investors next week will be the danger of an attack by either ISIS or Al Qaeda on US or allied soil. The specter of a US-led coalition entering Syria is only inflaming this threat. The conflict in Ukraine is heating up as well with NATO countries stepping up defense spending and deploying forces to eastern Poland. The S&P 500 (SPX) successfully negated recording a weekly outside down bar on Friday after bouncing off support at 1989. On Thursday, the SPX recorded an outside down day.

As is typical after a payrolls report, the economic calendar next week is sparse. The only report of note is the August retail sales data on Friday morning. Since early-2011, on an annual basis nominal sales have remained in a downtrend. Sales are expected to rise by 0.5% in the August report helped by strong back-to-school sales and a modest jump in auto sales.

With the FOMC meeting on September 17, there will be no speeches by Fed members about monetary policy in the coming week. This meeting, and the evolution of ECB policy, will continue to be a driving force across all asset classes.

It's still a few weeks away from earnings season so the calendar is sparse. With the latest rally in the dollar, keep an eye out for companies pre-reporting based upon unfavorable foreign exchange conditions.
