Economic calendar: US data and Trump's impeachment

7:35 AM January 13, 2021
  • European markets seen opening flat

  • House Democrats expected to vote on Trump's impeachment today

  • API data hinted at bigger-than-expected decline in oil stocks

European markets are seen opening flat on Wednesday following a mixed session in Asia. Investors will be served two noteworthy readings today - US CPI for December and DOE oil inventories report. The latter may provide some lift for oil prices should it confirm a bigger than expected drop signalled by API yesterday (-5.82 mb). Apart from that, US Vice President Pence is likely to reject a plea to invoke 25th Amendment against Trump and House Democrats are expected to vote on the impeachment articles today. However, it looks like a done deal and the question is whether the Senate will back it.
