Next week’s focus: U.S. employment and Fed-watching

In this week’s market update:

  • Good economic data in the U.S. did little to move markets this week.
  • Long-term investors remain focused on employment data and anticipating the Fed’s next move
  • What will the upcoming Greek debt deadline mean for the Eurozone, and will it impact economic growth there?
  • Why a good-news-is-bad news scenario may be playing out in Japan.

On this week’s Market Week in Review video, Chief Investment Strategist Erik Ristuben offers his views on the most important financial news of the week, including good – but not great – U.S. economic data and why Ristuben believes the markets remain focused on the U.S. employment number as a key barometer for what the U.S. Federal Reserve may do in September.

Mark Soupiset hosts this week’s market update, which also delves into the ongoing Greek bailout saga and what it means for investors, plus a look at why Ristuben thinks Japan’s central bank could again take action to stimulate economic growth.
