Trading Radar: Big Week for US Economic Data


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


Monday, US markets will be closed for the Memorial Day holiday.

Next week is a busy, holiday-shortened week in the US with the most important economic data of the month. The second estimate of 1Q GDP growth comes out on Thursday and the monthly nonfarm payrolls comes out on Friday. The first estimate saw the US growing at an annualized rate of 1.9%. The PCE deflator, a measure of inflation against growth, is also expected at 1.9%, meaning that US is expected to show no "true" growth in the first quarter. Economists are expecting 150,000 net new jobs in May and an unchanged unemployment rate at 8.1%.

ECB President Mario Draghi will be speaking in Brussels on Wednesday morning with the potential for a hint toward the ECB's actions in front of the following week's rate decision. On the same day, Brazil's central bank will make its monthly rate decision, with policymakers expected to lower the benchmark interest rate for the fourth straight month.

Key earnings reports include Ciena (CIEN), Lions Gate Entertainment (LGF), and Booz Allen Hamilton (BAH).
