Wall Street Week Ahead Reuters
Comparing the Federal Reserve to a rehab clinic offering addicted investors a synthetic high has been a favorite of Wall Street wags ever since the first round of Fed stimulus nearly four years ago. The punch line is that you always need more and more to get the same high and each bout of euphoria is followed by a crashing comedown.

While the markets are still digesting the Fed and ECB announcements, Spain is watching the markets and biding its time. Comments from the government suggest that if yield spreads continue to narrow it will take some time before an official request for support is made. Honestly, it does not matter if Spanish yields drop because of ECB buying or not, as long as they fall. Still, Spain, or rather comments from Spain, will be the crucial event risk to watch for in the near term. Apart from that, Euro-area PMI and UK retail sales will attract market attention. We expect generally positive surprises from the key figures this week.
