Weighing the Week Ahead Jeff Miller
We have a light calendar for economic data and a short week of trading. The biggest news will come from corporate earnings reports. Some financial stocks reported on Friday, but this is the first big week for Q416. Earnings season is always important, but sometimes it is special. This week the pundits will be asking: Will improving corporate earnings confirm perceptions of a stronger economy?

GBP down again and could suffer another blow next week

Week Ahead: Hawkish twist from Draghi  Nordea
Next week is ECB week. While we don’t expect new policy steps and not much change to Draghi’s tone, we see the risks tilted towards a hawkish market reaction. Key data releases are US CPI numbers and Chinese GDP growth.

Weekly Focus: Trump is taking over – buckle up Danske Bank
Inauguration of Trump and soon a plan for the first 100 day * US CPI and Fed speeches * ECB meeting * China GDP

Strategy: High surprise indices a risk Danske Bank
Very high surprise indices normally do not last for long – a short-term risk for yields * A strong clash between Trump and China is a rising risk * EUR/USD moves in tandem with US-German rate differential * Oil rally is over for now * Euro growth finished 2016 on a strong note

Macro Comment – Marc Chandler

FX trading themes next week TF
The shadow of Donald Trump has loomed large these last two months, but now the moment of truth is almost upon us, expect volatility all the way into next Friday's inauguration.

Weekly Market SummaryFat Pitch
US equities are starting the year at new all-time highs. The rally is supported by healthy breadth and a relatively solid economic foundation. The biggest watchout is volatility, which has fallen to an extreme. A mean reversion in volatility is odds-on and that is normally unfavorable, short term, for equities.
