Every week we expect many interesting events that can shake the market.
Thursday News: Expectations and Reality
In the current geopolitical situation, it’s difficult for analytics to predict all the economic aspects, either it’s about commodities or currencies.
US traders turn their attention to the Bureau of Labor Statistics who’ll release the CPI for the latest inflation data today. Economists expect CPI to rise 7.9% in February compared to last year. This figure will be the fastest annual jump since 1982 and exceed January's current 40-year high of 7.5%.
European Central Bank is going to make a monitory policy statement. Because of Russian-Ukrainian conflict, countries don’t rush raising an interest rate, even though the inflation is 5.8% now. The “stagflation” risk is high.
XBR saw its biggest one-day percentage decline in almost two years as prices settled at $111.14 per barrel.
In currency markets, the EURUSD pair traded at 1.1047 after rising 1.6% on Wednesday, the best day since June 2016, along with European equities and a sell-off in bonds.
In cryptocurrencies, bitcoin traded below $40,000 after a sharp rally in digital tokens fueled by optimism about an upcoming US cryptocurrency overhaul that could provide regulatory clarity for investors.
Adidas posted weaker-than-expected results for the year on Wednesday, but the sportswear brand remains set for the year ahead. Its total sales grew only 16% last year - less than the 18% it’d hoped for. Now the adidas stock costs €210.15.
Amazon rose 10% in extended trading after the e-commerce giant said its board approved a 20-to-1 split in the company's common stock - the first time since 1999 - and authorized a $10 billion share buyback.

The Federal Reserve (Fed) will announce its Interest Rate Decision and make a statement about the future monetary policy on Wednesday, September 21, GMT+3. After the higher-than-expected inflation numbers published on September 13, there’s almost no doubt the Federal Reserve will come up with another 75-basis-point rate hike. However, surprised by the CPI numbers, several Fed members announced the possibility of a 100-basis-point rate hike on Wednesday.
