Canadian Manufacturing Sales Expected to Drop

The US stock market is closed today. Investors wait for the Canadian Manufacturing Report.

West Palm Beach, United States - January 20, 2020 /PressCable/ —

In the US, Martin Luther King Day is celebrated; financial institutions are closed, and investor activity is reduced. So there will not be any breaking stock market news. On Friday, a block of American economic statistics came out. It was ambiguous but was generally welcomed by investors. Building Permits for December fell more than the market expected, from 1.474 to 1.416 million. However, the New Housing Starts increased significantly, from 1.375 to 1.608 million. The volume of industrial production for December fell by 0.3% after rising by 0, 8% a month earlier. The decrease was due to a reduction in utility production due to warm December. However, Manufacturing rose by 0.2% instead of the expected decline of 0.2%. The decline in automobile production was offset by an increase in the production of other durable goods, as well as drinks and products.

Canadian manufacturing sales data for the month of November is set to be released tomorrow. According to a TD Economics research report, manufacturing sales are likely to have dropped 0.2 percent in November as a partial recovery in auto shipments proves insufficient to counter a wider fall in manufacturing activity.

Preliminary auto production indicated a modest recovery in November after the UAW strike led to inventory shortages throughout Canada, although the scheduled windiwn of a major plant has weighed on the rebound.

Meanwhile, fabricated metals are expected to have bounced back after their largest one-month fall since 2008, although exports and labor market data indicate towards a wide pullback in manufacturing shipments.

“Real manufacturing sales should perform in line with the nominal print owing to unchanged factory prices during the month”, added TD Economics.

Oil quotes are declining today. Prices are in a downward correction after the Libyan National Oil Corporation reported that on Sunday, two major oil fields in southwestern Libya were closed due to hostilities. It can lead to a general reduction in production in the country. However, analysts are confident that interruptions in the supply of Libyan oil to the world market will be short-termed, and other world producers will be able to compensate it.

Protest in Nepal against plan to cut trees to widen road

Feb 25, 2020

KATHMANDU, Nepal — More than 200 people rallied in Nepal's capital Thursday to protest government plans to cut down about 2,000 trees to widen a key road that circles the city. The protesters held signs urging the government to stop the plan to remove the trees on the outer edge of Kathmandu. The 27-kilometer (17-mile) Ring Road encircles the capital and is a key road network for the increasingly congested city. "These trees were controlling pollution and giving fresh air so they cannot be cut down to make roads," said Saurav Dhakal, a protester. "Kathmandu is suffering from massive air...
