Week Ahead: February 11 – 15, 2019

This week, markets will once again turn their attention to trade negotiations with China. It seems the market is trading higher this morning on renewed hopes of a possible breakthrough. The temporary government reopening will also be making headlines this week and if a deal is not reached by Friday the President could once again shut down parts of the government. On the economic front, we will get a look at inflation data for January in the form of CPI and PPI. These numbers will be of particular interest to see if they are still running above the Feds 2% target. Our outlook on equity markets remains cautious in the near term.
