This week’s landscape is teeming with significant events that are sure to make waves. From the renowned Jackson Hole Symposium, where central bank policymakers convene annually, to the intriguing soft-landing narrative gaining traction in the market.
Turkey’s imminent decision to increase interest rates amidst soaring inflation, China’s unexpected rate hike stirring concerns about its economic health, and Nvidia’s upcoming earnings release that’s set to reverberate across the stock market. Notably, the rise of US bond yields is casting shadows on the value of Gold, while Bitcoin, amidst a flurry of liquidations, has witnessed a dip to a two-month low.
Stay tuned as we delve into the intricacies of these market-shaping developments.
In today’s DIFX Analytics, we’re going to look into the following assets:
❖ There will be an earnings report this week and many investors expect figures to beat expectations.
❖ The stock rose 6% last week in anticipation of the earnings report.
❖ Nvidia has made monumental strides in 2023, fueled by developments in artificial intelligence.
❖ Generative AI has attracted a stream of investment into tech and Nvidia has reaped the benefits of the boom.
❖ Gold is on a long-term bearish trend with rising yields hurting the asset.
❖ As yields rise, this increases the opportunity cost of holding the metal, which decreases the value of Gold.
