On Monday, the US weekly 3- and 6-month treasury bill auctions.
The short-term yields would give insight on how much the bond markets or the big money saver are willing to lend the money to others. The higher short-term rates mean more worries for the long-term lending economy and vice-versa.
On Wednesday, the US EIA oil and gas productions and inventories.
These publications would impact the energy commodities markets by a lot, as they indicated the past week’s demand and energy consumption of the US economy.
On Thursday, US initial jobless claims along with Fed balance sheet and 4- and 8-week treasury bill auctions.
The jobless claims indicated the official unemployment rate in the US, which is recently used to gauge whether the FED will further hike rate or not, as the low claims and hot jobs numbers means the economy could handle a higher interest rate. Meanwhile, the balance sheet indicates how tight or loose the Fed open market activity is.
