The Chief Strategist: Fed minutes and US jobfigures in focus

January 02, 2017
The first trading week of 2017 has begun and mainly two key events in the US will draw investor attention.

Wednesday we get the Fed minutes for the December meeting. The meeting where Fed announced a rate hike and furthermore - somewhat surprisingly - indicated that we might see three more rate hikes from the Fed in 2017.

On Friday we get the always important US jobreport. December job growth is expected to come in around 175.000.
