What's next for the upcoming week on the calendar
We've ended the long week to enjoy some peace and relaxation over the weekends as it was quite filled with action and a small dose of fear for sure. Have you noticed that every correction that happens stars to gain more and more attention? It's like the needle closes with every inch near the balloon to pop it. Small negative catalysts like first signs of worsening economic sentiment over the world and... the fear... of a forthcoming monetary policy tend to plunge the markets with 5 to 6% and everyone is near the fat finger to dump everything. The media is to blame about that for sure and it adds a bit of spice to the events. So when the catalyst fades out everyone's just back to buying, back to normal, like nothing happened and we have DJIA at a new all-time high in a month. Nothing yet that important has happened for everyone to panic and that we can talk about new dark times. Keep it chill.
So we are heading into a new week that's gonna be long for sure as entering mid-October the month has been more than filled with action and totally not boring. For the week between 15.10 and 19.10 we have the following news and events that we need to take into account for our forecasting and trading:
