Dollar Rises Before Trump Press Conference; Futures Flat, Turkish Lira Plunges

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / Jan 11, 2017 6:35 AM

European and Asian shares, the dollar and crude all rose before President-elect Donald Trump’s first press conference since July at 11am on Wednesday, while S&P futures are little changed. Surging raw-materials stocks sent Asian stocks higher. Oil rebounds from the lowest level in a month.

In a session light on economic news, all eyes will be on Trump’s press conference scheduled for 11 am: while Trump’s election campaign calls for tax cuts and more infrastructure spending have boosted U.S. shares and the dollar, his protectionist statements and a flurry of off-the-cuff Tweets have kept many investors from adding to risky positions. Trump has vowed to label China a currency manipulator on his first day in office on Jan. 20 and has threatened to slap huge tariffs on imports from China.  Paul Ryan and top members of Trump’s transition team are discussing a controversial plan to tax imports. Economists have warned that protectionist measures could stifle international trade and hurt global growth. That brings Trump’s press conference into sharp focus.

Ahead of this markets have been fairly reluctant to lay on any big bets this week heading into today’s main event. Indeed it’s been another fairly quiet 24 hours on the whole. Look no further than the S&P 500 which closed completely unchanged last night after wiping out some early modest gains. Sector wise gains for financials and health care stocks were balanced out by losses across energy stocks and real estate

So with that out of the way, here are the session highlights so far:

  1. Dollar pushes higher ahead of Trump press conference
  2. Oil prices edge higher ahead of U.S. inventory data
