- Knee-jerk reaction to politics: A potential obstruction of justice by Trump resulted in one down-day in Wall Street. And that’s it. The effect was widespread but short-lived. Looking deeper, we can sometimes distinguish between the effects on stocks and the effects on commodities. We touch on trade, the Fed’s reaction and more.
- Oil on a roll: Talk about an extension of the OPEC / non-OPEC deal meets a surprising slowdown in oil production in the US. Can we expect new highs?
- Preview: The upcoming week features the FOMC meeting minutes, updates on GDP from the US and the UK and also more political mess.
