Trump continues to dominate headlines

By Callum Holmes January 31st, 2017

Since Trump’s inauguration we’ve seen uncertainty and volatility increasing. The markets’ focus is going to remain on his new policies.

In other news, US employment figures, out on Friday, will be the highlight of the week in data terms. A 172,000 increase is anticipated. This should provide some relief for the dollar after last week’s poor GDP data.

The employment figures, coupled with other areas of positive macro data, could be a potential indicator of potential rate hikes for the markets.
