The Week Ahead - Market Moving Events - Oil Producer Meeting and US Presidential Debate

Major Oil Producer Informal Meeting In Algeria
The world's biggest oil producers  led by Saudi Arabia and non-cartel members headed by Russia  will meets  in Algeria next week from 26 – 28 Sep   to negotiate an oil production freeze in order to stabilize prices. While many of such meetings previously had disappointed, this time round looks promising, the most  compelling reason to reach a collective agreement this blog believe is that many of the biggest  producers are close to producing at maximum capacity and  there is little  to lose by agreeing to cap output at current levels. Even more compelling  is Saudi’s planto issue debts worth 15 billion  on the international market next month for the first time and by lifting oil prices they hope to give to market more confident that things are looking up.

US Presidential Debate
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump meets on 26 Sep for the 2016 US presidential election debate which we be the  most-watched US presidential debate in history. While Clinton now holds a the marginal lead on national polls ,  the race too close to call.  If any one candidate gain more than 2-3% lead after the debate,  history shows the candidate is likely to win the election causing the market to go into wild gyration. If Donald Trumps leads after the debate stock market will colapse and  Gold will surge. This blog believes Trump could make Clinton look like a little girl judging by is oratory credential. This blog stay cautious ahead of the event.

Big Week Ahead - FOMC and BOJ Meets To Set Direction For Monetary Policies

The markets continues to gyrated with to every Fed official speech. We will know Fed decision on 21 Sep morning and the outcome of BOJ meeting in the afternoon. Odds of Fed raising rates dipped to 18% before FOMC meets next week after retail sales disappoint and former US Treasury Secretary declaring that there is no compelling case for Sep rate hike. What the Bank of Japan is going to announce, be it more easing or more tightening, is anybody’s guess. The uncertainty is creating a potentially extremely perilous situation for investors and traders. Since Fed is going to announce first on 21 Sep morning and BOJ later in the afternoon BOJ may take the queue from Fed.after the disastrous response to the Negative Interest rate  policy announced at the end of January, this blog do not believe Kuroda will further expand on this policy

Some of the recent speeches made by Kuroda also signal that  Kuroda would not implement more NIRP, however he might introduce something to replace it. He could favour monetary policy and fiscal policy in terms of the monetisation of infrastructure stimulus.

Let's wait on  the central bankers to set the macro monetary direction before deciding on the next move!

Expectation of a Crude Production Cut Could Spark A Short Covering Rally

Oil producers will discuss a potential freeze on production  again at an informal  meeting in Sept. 26-28  in Algeria. Last week, The Russian President Putin told Bloomberg it would be the right decision to strike an agreement between oil exporters to support the market. Traders remember how the  last oil exporter meeting in Doha failed to find an agreement causing oil prices to correct down sharply, hence  less expectation this round.

This blog believes that this specially arranged meeting could surprise with a decision to freeze or cut production, because most of the oil major exporters are already producing at maximum capacity. A surprise decision could spark a short covering rally that could cause oil prices to rise at least another $10 to $54.

At the meantime the downside is supported  by expectation of a cut at Algeria. This blog is bullish on oil for the next 2 weeks.
