Forecast for Friday, November 14

Stock market

Today will be published main report of the week from the US — data on retail sales. Recall that the markets for the most part, focused on indicators of inflation and the labor market, expecting that these releases will help them deal with the Fed’s future plans with respect to monetary policy. Nevertheless, scheduled for today, the report could still attract the attention of the market, as it is likely that employment growth and positive consumer sentiment resulted in an increase in sales over the past month. If so, it may cause an increase in expectations for more rapid transition to a tightening mode, and partly to put pressure on the US NASDAQ index and the DJIA.


Oil prices have already completed a decent way down, and it seems that is not going to stop there, as the representatives of OPEC is clearly given to understand that in any way are not going to deal with the current drop in Brent to 4-year low. Tranquility Saudi Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi at a conference in Acapulco, in which he denied any suspicion of «price wars», was a call to action and now, after a possible slight correction back to 80 per barrel, the asset could be adjusted to achieve $ 75.30.

Foreign exchange market

Friday will bring just two interesting economic report: German GDP and US retail sales, which can make the EUR / USD the most volatile pair today. The pace of growth of the European economy in the third quarter are particularly interesting, since the forecast figure is dangerously close to zero (0.1%). If analysts were wrong, and in the third quarter GDP is still not growing and shrinking, we can see the euro under pressure. The immediate goal down can be a mark of 1.2420.

And then the scene will report from the United States. Indicators are projected to be not very high, but there are prerequisites that baselines that do not include sales of cars, will be slightly above expectations thanks to strong consumer sentiment and growing labor market. If so, then the pair may continue to fall in with the immediate goal at the level of 1.2380.

USD / RUB should please its restraint — though a couple of grown from the closing levels of protection, but steadfastly held under 130 points, fearing to approach the mark of 47.00 too close. It is worth noting that all this occurred against the backdrop of falling oil prices: Brent for the first time since September 2010, crossed the $ 80.00 support and reached a low of $ 77.29 a barrel. Such restraint ruble after the crazy traffic in October — November only confirms that the number of speculators in the market was reduced and, therefore, the ceiling in the form of level 47.00 will deter the couple in the short term. Most likely, until November 17 to which is assigned and the annual foreign exchange auction and the announcement of the decision of the EU sanctions, the pair will consolidate within the recent range 45.00 — 47.00.
