Waiting for what's behind the morning

By Frances Horodelski, Anchor
Today we have the facts of the Fed (statement and economic projection release at 2 p.m. ET and press conference at 2:30 p.m. ET). Remember, often times, the first reaction is the wrong one. We also get oil inventories (a 1.5 million barrel drop is expected. Inventories have fallen in 10 of the last 11 weeks).

Who makes more jobs, small or big business?

By Andrew McCreath, BNN Markets Commentator
With markets mixed across the board, Andrew McCreath says the focus is on the anticipated action from the FED next week. Labour markets and inflation in the U.S. are trending towards normal, but not monetary policy. Because the U.S. has failed to redistribute wealth, McCreath says, the FED is unlikely to be as hawking as markets seem to believe. As well, with Ottawa announcing EI cuts yesterday, McCreath questions whether these measures are enough to make any real change for Canadian business.

Fed to dictate the tape

By Andrew McCreath, BNN Markets Commentator
Easing tensions around the globe has turned the focus away from geopolitics towards Chinese growth (or lack thereof). But Andrew says this week it’s all about the Fed, as all eyes are on the upcoming FOMC minutes on Wednesday, most especially on speeches to be made by Janet Yellen and Mario Draghi, who are both expected to be very dovish. Plus, a forward-look at Canadian bank earnings.

O Captain! My Captain!

By Frances Horodelski, Anchor
The economic calendar is very light. Traders note however that maybe the most important week of the second half will be next week with the minutes from the last FOMC meeting and similar notes from the last BOE meeting, flash manufacturing PMIs (again?) plus the agenda for the Fed gabfest at Jackson Hole will be released on August 21st (the meeting is August 21 through 23). The earnings calendar continues to thin although we have Cascades (miss), Rona, American Apparel and Fossil before the bell. Tomorrow is a more interesting day with Deere, Cisco, Macy’s, CAE and Aimia.

U.S. jobs: Soft enough to soften

By Andrew McCreath, BNN Markets Commentator
Stocks are in the red and bonds are in the green this morning on the latest U.S. job number.

Andrew says if this continues it will hurt the market. Plus, a look at companies getting hurt over their Russian exposure.

It's all about Uncle Sam today

By Andrew McCreath, BNN Markets Commentator
Market drivers today are all-American on ADP data, a strong GDP number, and a Fed decision this afternoon. Andrew says the greenback is going to continue to get more green, but Europe is in for more tough times as the ECB squares of with German interests. Plus, gold is under-performing so it might be time for base metals to shine.
