US Market View

 World shares dipped on Friday as investors awaited progress towards more U.S. fiscal stimulus, while the dollar was set for a weekly loss. U.S. stocks are set to open with light profit-taking at the end of another broadly positive week, punctuated by bursts of retail investor frenzy. Central banks across the world are clearer of late that their policies will be accommodative even beyond the current emergency period and this is further supportive for risk assets.

U.S. weekly unemployment claims fell less than expected and core consumer prices rose at a slower pace, causing some traders to temper their optimism about the economic outlook. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the Democrats’ proposal for a $15 minimum wage will be in the final draft of the stimulus package when the House debates it. The proposal, if implemented, could have far-reaching impacts on the structure of consumer spending in the U.S., along with risks to low-wage employment.

The British economy contracted by the most in over 300 years last year due to a combination of the pandemic and lower business investment due to the Brexit uncertainty. The Russian ruble fell after Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said the country was ready to break off diplomatic relations with the European Union.

USA Key Point
