Weekly Market Commentary | 20.05 – 26.05

Curious to know what’s happening on the markets this week? Take a quick tour of the latest news, economic updates, and trading setups that will keep you up-to-date and in the know!


  • The week kicks off on a quiet note, as usual, with an almost empty economic calendar. A good day to catch your breath before the action picks up.


  • Eyes on Canadian inflation data, expected at 0.5% month-on-month. This will be the highlight, setting the tone for the Canadian dollar and potentially influencing broader market sentiment.


  • Key event: Nvidia’s earnings report post-market close could shake up stocks and indices, so keep an eye on tech.
  • Macro data: New Zealand’s interest rate decision (likely to stay at 5.5%), UK’s inflation (expected at 2.1%), and the FOMC meeting minutes from the U.S. These events will keep traders busy all day.


  • PMI day: Major economies including France, Germany, the Eurozone, the UK, and the U.S. will release their manufacturing and services PMIs. These reports are crucial indicators of economic health and can lead to significant market movements.


  • Retail sales data from the UK, expected at -0.6%, could set the tone for the British pound.
  • Also on the docket: Canadian retail sales figures, U.S. durable goods orders, and the revised University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment, expected at 67.7. A full day that could wrap up the week with a bang.
