Week commencing 11 September

Chris Beauchamp's insight

US consumer price index (CPI) and the European Central Bank (ECB) rate decision are the key events this week, as markets look to recover from a poor start to September. A resurgence in price growth in the US could spark more worries about fresh Federal Reserve (Fed) rate hikes, while a hawkish ECB would spur concerns that the eurozone economy is tipping towards a recession. In a quiet week for earnings, housebuilder Redrow and retailer THG will be of interest in the UK.

Dividends are applied after the close of the previous day’s session for each market. So, for example, the FTSE 100 goes ex-dividend on a Thursday, but the adjustment is applied at the close of the previous day, e.g. Wednesday. The table below shows the days in which the adjustment is applied, not the ex-dividend days.

Well predicted, US CPI inflation rose 3.7% in August, exceeding forecasts. Core CPI is steady at 4.3%. Despite the inflation jump, #Bitcoin price holds above $26K, showing resilience. With BTC holding key support, bullish sentiment is intact as the market anticipates the Fed rate decision next week.

In my opinion, this is the best time to explore the current hybrid trend exemplified by platforms like Bitget Swap and Binance that merge the DEX security with CEX ease and liquidity aiming at enhancing the trading experience.
