The overall market is currently experiencing normal macro volatility. Some of the largest moves in the market today include: Bitcoin has experienced a move of +2.1%. Gold has experienced a move of -0.6%.

China’s consumer prices rose more than expected in April, with a 0.3% year-over-year increase and producer prices dropping for the 19th consecutive month by 2.5%, while vehicle sales grew robustly at 9.3% (even if credit growth was weak).

These figures may influence global market sentiment as investors await key U.S inflation data due Wednesday that could sway Federal Reserve interest rate decisions come September. Central bank policy announcements from Asia including Australia’s budget release, Japan’s preliminary Q1 growth data, and China’s central bank interest-rate decision are also on this week’s radar starting May 13th.

Corporate earnings reports will be closely watched too, with Alibaba Group Holding and Walmart among companies set to disclose their financial results throughout the same period.
