As markets are mostly steady on Wednesday, anticipating the U.S. Federal Reserve minutes, which probably would not contain any defining signs for policy changes but may cause some usual after-volatility, a week of corporate reports from major retailers have already made some preliminary discrepancy into the overall sentiment.  The Home Depot, which is Atlanta-based and the largest home improvement and furniture shopping network in the United States, is still very successful amidst the pandemic crisis time. However, its shares initially dropped more than 4.

The middle of this week, was expected to  bring about high volatility in the markets suddenly. But the truth of the matter is that it is showing extreme fragility and uncertainty with price movements and factors affecting it. Investors are trying to tune into any kind of signals that would reflect the policy of the Federal Reserve (Fed). In fact, markets are picking up some signals that were considered with low relevance before. Summer complacency was suddenly interrupted by worse July unemployment data compiled by ADP.

The New Zealand Dollar, or just the Kiwi, according to the traders' slang term, could become the second of the major currencies to strengthen on a systematic basis after the Loonie, which is the Canadian Dollar. The last one has been embarking on a healthy path since the third week of April when the central bank of the country changed the size of the quantitative easing (QE) monetary program from $4 billion to $3 billion loonies per week, thus partly compressing the growth pace of the excessive money supply.

The British Pound is among the most prominent currencies that are seen to be benefiting from the U.S. Dollar weakness in the end of July. And, there are several drivers that seem to be pushing the Pound upside. The U.S. Dollar is consciously being pressured by the Federal Reserve (Fed) with its loose monetary policy. The Fed and its Chair Jerome Powell reconfirmed recently its commitment to continue quantitative easing policy with pumping as much as $120 billion each month for an uncertain period of time.

More corporate earnings updates from the market's world-known issuers, followed by CEOs conference calls - as it usually happens - wore ruts in the fundamental background road of the week. None of them tried to eclipse the overall sunny sentiment with even one cloud.  Tesla, the pioneer mass manufacturer of electric vehicles, broke its own delivery record by building and shipping more than 200,000 vehicles during the second quarter. That was as much as 151% growth over last year. The company also added nearly 1,000 supercharging stations to its network.

Platinum prices have been performing a downside movement since mid-July as they fell from $1146 per troy ounce to $1054, or by almost 8%. Platinum went under a global sell off of risky assets used for the production of other items – crude, stocks, metals, etc. fell victim to negative market sentiment as new, more contagious and deadly COVID-19 Delta and other strains spread around the globe. Besides, signals of possible early tapering of monetary stimulus in the United States due to the rise in inflation levels are seen to be much more visible recently.

The market's bulls were routed during the first trading day of the week, both at the American and the European battlefields. The U.S. S&P 500 broad market index futures initially lost 96 points just one hour before the closing of Monday's session, touching the local bottom, which was 3.65% lower compared with the multi-month high of 4384.38 points on July 14.

It seems that the single European currency has been laying on the side of risky assets over recent months. All of these risky assets are currently standing against the U.S. Dollar, which has been acting like a safe haven asset so far this year. The dovish rhetoric of Federal Reserve’s (Fed) Chair Jerome Powell in the U.S. Congress seems to be pressuring the Greenback while supporting the Euro. Mr. Powell streamed placidity despite shocking inflation figures in the United States that hit 5.4%.

As the U.S. Federal Reserve’s (Fed) head Jerome Powell and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen are ready for two days of Congressional testimony, against a thrilling background of another inflation spike in the American economy, the three major New York stock indexes continue to consolidate tranquilly in the direct neighbourhood of all-time highs. The U.S. consumer price index (CPI) set a fresh record of 5.4% annual growth, with the so-called "core" CPI excluding food and energy segments also hitting the 4.5% bar, which is an absolute maximum of domestic price dynamics since 1991.

The European central bank (ECB) made an unexpected move in its monetary policy by changing its inflation target from the previous “below, but close to, 2% over the medium term” to “2% over the medium-term with a ’symmetric’ aim”. The new approach of the ECB is clearer as the Governing Council of the ECB is now considering negative and positive deviations from this target due to the fact that now they are equally undesirable. However, this statement eliminates “any possible ambiguity and resolutely conveys that 2% is not a ceiling” as the President of the ECB Christine Lagarde said.
