The Week Ahead: 18th – 22nd April 2022

Overview for the Week Ahead

On Monday, investors will also have their first chance to react to news over the weekend that Twitter has adopted a limited duration shareholder rights plan, commonly referred to as a ‘poison pill’ as it looks to prevent a takeover by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who has offered to take the social media giant private for $54.20 per share.

Oil prices climbed to nearly three-week highs on Monday as fears over tight global supply grew, with the deepening crisis in Ukraine raising the prospect of heavier sanctions by the West on top exporter Russia.

investors will be watching building permits and housing starts. Chicago Fed president Charles Evans will also speak before the Economic Club of New York on current economic events and monetary policy.

Economic data on Thursday will include the Conference Board’s index of leading economic indicators and the latest in initial and continuing jobless claims. Other notable events include the launches of Fidelity’s new crypto and metaverse ETFs and SpaceX’s Crew-4 mission.

Wrapping up the week will be earnings from American Express, Kimberly-Clark, Schlumberger and Verizon before the market open. Investors will also take in the S&P Global flash Markit manufacturing and services PMIs.

Plan your trades carefully and have a great trading week!
