The US Economic Calendar For The Week Of November 10, 2014

Assuming that the majority of Americans would like to keep an eye on their money, the US Economic Calendar for the week of November 10, 2014 is a great guide for anyone to have at their disposal!

With economic and political uncertainty currently more of the rule than exception, this weeks key economic releases may hold some extremely helpful clues concerning the strength of the US economy and, just as importantly, the future direction of interest rates.

Interest rates remain a critical cog not only for fixed income and equity investors, but for the overall strength of the real estate market and  the availability of the financing used to purchase real estate.

The US Economic Calendar

The economic data scheduled for release this week will provide investors and businesses with both anecdotal evidence about the direction that the US economy is heading along with actual data about its current condition.

The upcoming week is somewhat quiet including no scheduled releases on Tuesday, Veterans Day. Some of the most significant data to be released includes Wholesale Trade, Jobless Claims, Retail Sales and Consumer Sentiment.

It will also be a quiet week for scheduled speeches by members of the Federal Reserve with Eric Rosengren scheduled for Monday. Charles Plosser on Wednesday, Narayana Kocherlakota on Thursday and James Bullard on Friday.

Additionally, impromptu comments or remarks by any Fed members can potentially occur at any time.

Finally, the markets will once again also be closely watching domestic political issues along with geopolitical hotspots that have the potential for serious flare-ups with global implications.

Nationally and Geopolitically, some issues to watch include:

  • How the Republican victory in the mid-term election will or will not impact US policy,
  • The continued scourge of ISIS, 
  • The continued decline in the global price of oil and impact on oil producing nations like Russia and Saudi Arabia,
  • ‘Potential for Lone Wolf’ terrorist attacks at home,
  • Russia-Ukraine conflict,
  • Potential for White House negotiations with Iran for cooperation in the fight against ISIS,
  • US-Mexico border security and immigration.
