It’s a quiet week ahead in terms of fundamental data releases but there should still be plenty of volatility across financial markets. The stock markets are still under pressure as we start the week with trade tensions continuing to be the major focus for the markets, but is there some light at the end of the tunnel with the US and China potentially coming up with an agreement that will see the tariffs reduced or even scrapped?

General consensus around the market is that we’re seeing the start of holiday season trading patterns as we now have most of the big fundamental economic releases out of the way for the month and indeed for the year. The main themes are pretty much set into this week and the Christmas holidays with the market still concerned with the progress of the US tax reform plan and the UK’s Brexit. We will start to see markets become more flow driven as we move through the week as the lack of new data and thinning liquidity starts to take its toll on normal market conditions.
