Thursday preview: US stimulus plans, Powell in focus

(Sharecast News) – All eyes on Thursday will be fixated on the incoming US President’s proposal for new government stimulus.
Biden’s stimulus plans are expected to include $2,000 monthly paychecks for ordinary Americans, a hike in aid for state and local governments and a boost in enhanvced federal unemployment benefits.

Against that backdrop, after the close of trading in London, Federal Reserve chairman, Jerome Powell, is due to participate in a webinar hosted by Princeton university.

Investors will also be keeping close tabs on the latest weekly unemployment claims figures following the surprisingly weak non-farm payrolls data for December published the week before.

The ongoing daily rate of Covid-19 vaccinations in the US will also be kept track of, with the latest figures, as per Pantheon Macroeconomics, showing that they have roughly doubled over the past week to reach 642,000 per day.

On home shores, focus will be on the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors’ house price balance for December.

Across the channel, the minutes of the European Central Bank’s last rate-setting meeting are due out at 1230 GMT.
