Starting this thread for alerts and discussion of upcoming key economic data and key market-related events. Let's see if there is any interest.
For example, we've just seen the results of the Greek elections. These elections were a key focus of the markets, helping to create great trading opportunities in the preceding days and weeks (and now, in following days).
What other key events and data are coming up that will help create opportunities?
Any ideas, post them up please.
Try to keep the thread focused and relevant to traders & trading opportunities.
I'll get the ball rolling with the G20 meetings happening right now.
There is an FOMC meeting on June 19 and 20, with the statement due at 12.30pm NY time on the 20th, and Bernanke's press conference a couple of hours later at 2.15pm.
JOLTS data is due to be released at 10am on the 19th - this data is a key point for the Fed but given its release on the day of the meeting I don't know how relevant this will be for this FOMC meeting?
What will be the developments re further QE (if any)?
Have markets built in expectations for more QE already? Or not?
Also on the 20th is the HSBC Flash Manuf. PMI for China (12.30pm Sydney time). More info for a data-hungry market.
And there are plenty more key releases due this week (and a plethora of minor releases of course).
If there is any interest a similar thread could be started more relevant specifically to the Australian market.
