The US Economic Calendar For The Week Of November 17, 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 17, 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 ease of availability for 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 economyis heading along with actual data about its current condition.

The upcoming week has something for everyone who is searching for economic clues. Some of the most significant data to be released includes the FOMC Minutes, Housing Starts, Philly Fed Survey, E-Commerce Retail Sales and the Consumer price Index (CPI).

It will also be a quiet week for scheduled speeches by members of the Federal Reserve with none scheduled, although impromptu comments or remarks by any of the 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 plan for President Obama to issue an Executive Order concerning amnesty of immigrants in the country illegally,
  • The continued scourge of ISIS who seem to have cobbled an alliance with al-Qaeda,
  • The continued decline in the global price of oil and the impact that will have on oil producing nations like Russia and Saudi Arabia,
  • ‘Potential for Lone Wolf’ terrorist attacks at home,
  • Russia-Ukraine conflict that seems to be reaching an inflection point,
  • Potential for White House negotiations with Iran for cooperation in the fight against ISIS,
  • US-Mexico border security.
