2012/04/23: Quick Post: Weekly Calendar and Perspective Available

© 2012 ROHR International, Inc. All International rights reserved.

The Weekly Report & Event Calendar is now available through the link in the right hand column. The focused comments below it are already available as well in the calendar section as the now regular weekly Summary Perspective on key influences. We hope you find that useful as well.

For those of you who have not already seen it, there is a lot of emphasis on Wednesday and Friday this week. However, as opposed to last week’s clear focus on Thursday’s 10 year Obligaciones (Spanish government bond) auction, this week has critical influence into and after Wednesday’s FOMC rate decision, statement and projections that are followed by Mr. Bernanke’s press conference. It is not a US Payrolls Friday this week, but the cumulative effect of the Friday economic releases are likely to be equally as influential…

…especially Chinese data and the first look at US Q1 GDP. All of which is taking place against the backdrop of renewed concerns about Europe. The ECB may support Spanish bond prices in the near term (i.e. suppress yields) in spite of the limitations on that discussed previous (including demotivating private sector buyers.) Yet, until the weekend election results nobody had any idea France might be so close to going over to the profligate fiscal Dark Side once again.

And that may be one of the most telling factors for the markets. On the other hand, in the Summary Perspective we articulate the reasons that a Hollande victory may still be a lot less likely that his good showing in round one suggests.

We hope you find that useful. And as there is a concise review of trend tendencies in the Summary Perspective , there are neither any General Market Observations nor EXTENDED TREND IMPLICATIONS in this post.

Enjoy the read and as always…

Thanks for your interest.
